Can you whisk batter?
Can you turn on your oven?
It is that easy.
After a lot of searching, I eventually found it written into my old cookbook from when I was young. There were a whole bunch of things in there I had forgotten about that I don’t bake anymore. Like jam drops. And rock cakes.
Thank god for this blog for keeping my recipes organized. Because I don’t even know where this recipe originally came from, so I can’t link it back.
250g dark chocolate
250g unsalted butter
200g caster sugar
250g hazelnut meal
Preheat the oven to 180 C and line a 23cm (9 inch) round spring-form pan with baking paper.
In a double saucepan or in a metal bowl placed over a pot of simmering water, melt the chocolate and the butter.
Remove from the heat and stir in the caster sugar.
Whisk in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the hazelnut meal.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 1 hour and 10-20 minutes, until the cake is set in the center. Serves 10-12.
Coco wanted some cake, too.
