It was our 3rd anniversary the other day and the tradition goes that we have a piece of chocolate cake and a piece of cheese cake on that day. Cheese cake for this year was turkish delight cheese cake and the chocolate cake this one.
500g good-quality dark chocolate
125g unsalted butter
1/4 cup caster sugar
1 tbs plain flour
- Preheat oven to 200°C. Grease and line the base of a 20cm springform cake pan.
- Melt the chocolate, butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a bowl set over a saucepan of gently simmering water Stir until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is well combined, then remove the bowl from the pan and set side to cool slightly.
Beat the eggs and the sugar in
an electric mixer for 10 minutes on medium-high until very thick and
pale. Using a metal spoon, gently fold in the flour, then the chocolate
mixture, trying to retain as much air as possible.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake in the oven for 12 minutes (the cake will look raw at this stage).
Remove the cake from the oven and run
a knife around the edge of the pan. Set aside to cool in the pan, then
place in the freezer for few hours.
Remove the cake from the freezer 1 hour before serving and leave at room temperature to soften.
Oh and as an anniversary present my very own awesome police officer got me a new flash camera. Yay! Thanks hubs, you're the best!
