  • Prep time 20 mins
  • Cooking time 1 hrs
  • Serves

    200g dark chocolate, chopped into small pieces
    150g butter, chopped into small pieces
    5 eggs, separated
    1/2 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar
    1/2 cup Chelsea Icing Sugar
    1 1/2 cups fine ground almonds
    extra Chelsea Icing Sugar to dust


    Pre-heat the oven to 160°C. Spray a 23cm spring-form tin with a non stick baking spray and line with a non stick baking paper.

    In the microwave (or a small saucepan, over a very gentle heat) melt the chocolate and butter, stirring together to blend well. Stir in the egg yolks, Chelsea Caster Sugar, Chelsea Icing Sugar and ground almonds.

    In a separate bowl with clean beaters, whisk the egg whites until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then pour into the prepared tin.
    Bake for approx 1 hour, until the cake is firm in the centre. Run a palette knife around the edge of the tin to loosen the sides. Remove the spring-form ring and turn out on a wire rack to cool completely.

    Serve dusted generously with extra Chelsea Icing Sugar. This cake is delicious served with a little softly whipped cream and fruit – strawberries, raspberries etc.

Would I just use normal products?
CHELSEA; Hi there, this recipe uses regular ingredients anyway and is naturally gluten free.

Favourite chocolate cake recipe. Super easy to make, I have made it many times and it always works and goes down a treat.

Brilliant cake I have made this dozens of times.
It travels well - taken to a number of functions!!
Freezes well great to have on standby if unexpected guests arrive.

Second time I've made this, it's divine and easy to do nom nom nom.

Best chocolate cake ever! Very light and quite rich so you don't need a big serving. So easy to make the mixture but have to leave a bit of time for it to cook. I prefer to cook it for 50ish minutes so it is super moist and brownie like.

It took a bit longer to cook than expected but was a total hit with my guests, most of which are not gluten free!
