This is a flourless chocolate cake with a twist - the mix is divided into two parts; the first is baked and the second is chilled and later tops the baked layer. Use fresh eggs and good quality chocolate - preferably with 70% cocoa, and don't over-bake the base.

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4 / 160 C fan. Grease a 21cm cake tin and line with baking parchment.
  2. In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar with electric mixer until pale and creamy.
  3. In a second bowl beat well together butter, ground walnuts, melted chocolate and cocoa.
  4. In a third bowl beat egg whites until they are firm.

Altered ingredient amounts.Just a short note about the double cream: 4 decilitres is 400 ml, and you can use thickened cream instead of double cream - it's easier to whip...-28 Apr 2009(Review from this site AU | NZ)

It is fail proof! I made this cake for the first time for a 25th wedding anniversary celebration and it was a hit. Chewy moist and rich, I'll be making it again for sure. I made it another third bigger, to serve 16 people, so I used 8 eggs, 267 gm sugar/butter, etc and it came out perfect. I made it the day before the party and kept it in the fridge adding the cream layer in the afternoon about 6 hrs before it was served and it was just lovely! Thanks Gina :-)-18 Oct 2013(Review from this site AU | NZ)

    It's quite difficult for me to judge the level of your competence, but you have revealed this topic very deeply and informatively

    Good day, dear colleagues and friends. I spent a lot of time looking for a good blog on similar topics, but many of them did not suit me with the lack or lack of information, stupid interfaces, and so on. Now I found what I wanted and decided to add my own comment. I would like, dear sirs administrators, that your blog continues to develop at such a pace, the number of people grows steadily, and the pages become more and more. I remembered the address of your blog for a long time and I hope to enter the ranks of the most active users. Many thanks to everyone who listened to me and took a minute of free time to read this commentary. Thanks again. Vitaly.
