1/4 cup cocoa plus more for dusting
100g ground almonds
Grease, line and grease again an 8” cake tin.
Preheat the oven to 150C.
Melt butter and chocolate together in a bowl over simmering water (or in the microwave) and allow to cool a little. Beat together the eggs, sugar, ground almonds and cocoa, but do not whip in too much air. Stir in the chocolate and butter mixture.
Pour mixture into the tin and place carefully in the middle of the oven. Bake for about 30 minutes until set, remove and turn out only when completely cool, dust with the extra cocoa powder and serve.
Delicious with bitter orange ice cream (recipe to follow one day) or just a good dollop of crème fraîche or Greek Yoghurt!
