Serves 4 - 6

Serves 4 -6 

150g dark chocolate (55-70% cocoa solids)
150g butter
125g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
75g ground almonds
4 eggs, separated
Pinch of salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/170˚C fan/gas mark 5. Place the chocolate, butter and sugar in a bowl sitting over a saucepan of simmering water and allow to melt. Take the bowl off the heat and stir in the vanilla extract, the ground almonds and the four egg yolks, one by one.
  2. Put the egg whites in a bowl with the pinch of salt and whisk just until stiff, but still creamy rather than grainy.
  3. Fold in the chocolate mixture and tip into a one-litre capacity pie dish.
  4. Bake in the oven for 22-25 minutes until the outsides are set and the centre just has a thick wobble. If you take this out of the oven before it has completely cooked, it will stay nutty and fudgy, even when it cools down.
  5. Allow to sit for a few minutes before serving. Wonderful with cold, softly whipped cream or ice cream.
