Rich Chocolate Cake
2 cups Self Raising flour
250 grams dark chocolate
300 ml cream
1/4 cup white sugar
6 tbsp butter
6 egg yolks
3 egg whites
Preheat oven to 180 Celsius
In a saucepan, place chocolate, butter, cream and sugar. Heat gently until butter is melted, stirring to combine ingredients.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Set aside.
Once chocolate mix is cooled slightly, add egg yolks one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Transfer chocolate mix to a large bowl.
Sift flour into mix and beat until combined and mixture is smooth and glossy.
Fold egg whites into chocolate mix.
Once the mix is an even colour, pour into a greased 8 inch (20cm) spring form tin or cake tin.
Bake for 1 hour, approximately, or until a metal skewer comes out clean.
Note : Ingredient quantities are approximate only as this was a case of make up as I go and use what I had on hand.
