Today I decided to tweet a recipe while making a Chocolate Torte, I got quite a lot of good feedback, so time permitting I will try and do a recipe every so often. So here goes 🙂
- 200 grams of dark chocolate- 50% min cocoa content
- 200 grams of butter
- 220 grams of sugar
- 4 free range eggs separated
In another bowl beat the egg yolks and half the sugar (110grams) together
Whisk the egg whites until they are frothy and then slowly add the sugar, whisking until you have glossy stiff peaks
Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then pour into the cake tin.
Cook for approximately 40mins. Use a skewer to test if the torte is ready, prick the middle of the torte, if the skewer comes out clean the torte is ready.
Dust with cocoa or icing sugar and serve with a fruit couli, cream or a salted caramel sauce
