I'm hungry. And when I'm hungry I google recipes help.gif

Flourless Chocolate Cake


125g unsalted butter

185g dark chocolate roughly chopped

5 large eggs, separated

pinch of salt

230g caster sugar

250g ground almonds (almond meal)

To Decorate:

300g dark chocolate, melted

1 punnet fresh raspberries

icing sugar


Preheat oven to 180C.

In a medium heat proof bowl over simmer water stir butter, chocolate till melted together. Set aside to cool

Beat egg whites with salt and 1/3 of sugar until soft peaks form. Beat egg yolks with the remaining sugar until creamy. Fold yolks into chocolate then the almond meal. Then fold egg whites in.

Spray and line with baking paper a spring-form pan. Pour mixture into pan and bake for 45-55 minutes or until cake is firm in the middle. Cool on a wire rack.

Meanwhile cut a circle of baking paper 6cm wider than the diameter of the cake. Spread thickly the melted chocolate and set aside to harden slightly - for 5 mins. place on top of cooked cake and allow sides to fold down over the cake loosely. Refrigerate until set. Sprinkle with raspberries and icing sugar.

Sounds decadant! Although where do you source ground almonds from so that they arent like $20 for 500grams? All i can find is that stuff in the little packets that they also sell chopped nuts in... if you know what i mean...and its hell expensive :shock:

Of course it's healthy - chocolate's full of anti-oxidants. And sugar. :P

And it also makes your body release endorphins, thereby helping you feel better about yourself which makes you more likely to exercise and make further good food choices. Win Win loose Win :D
