for the cake:

  • 4 eggs
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 100g plain chocolate
  • 60g plain flour
  • 7g baking powder

for the top:

  • 500ml whipping cream
  • 200g dark chocolate


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C and line the bottom of a 20cm cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Place the butter and chocolate into a pan, and keep stirring over the low heat. When completely melted, set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks and sugar until creamy.  Slowly add melted butter and chocolate, and mix on low speed until completely combined.
  4. Sift the flour and baking powder into the mixture and beat until creamy and pourable.
  5. In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
  6. With a spatula slowly and gradually combine the egg whites into the first mixture, folding as you go. Continue until everything is completely blended.
  7. Pour into a prepared cake tin, and bake for 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  8. For chocolate ganache, place the chocolate into a medium bowl and heat the cream in a small saucepan over medium heat. When it comes to the boil, pour over the chopped chocolate and stir until smooth.
  9. Pour it over the cake that has been cooled for 20ish minutes, while it’s still in the tin, and let it set for a few hours (at room temperature and then in the fridge).
