Rich Chocolate Cake


200gram dark chocolate (broken into pieces)

180 g sugar

180 g unsalted butter (cut into pieces)

80 g plain flour (or use gluten free for a gluten free cake)

pinch salt

3 eggs


Preheat oven to 190 degrees

Place chocolate, butter and sugar into mixing bowl and melt for 5mins/60 degrees/speed 2

Add flour, salt and eggs and mix for 15 sec/speed 4

Pour into a lined 20 cm round cake tin and bake for 20-30 minutes or until the edges have come away from the sides of the tin and a skewer tests almost clean.


Serve dusted with icing sugar or cream and berries

This cake is best eaten cold as it almost sets when it is cooling to a fudgy interior and chewy sugary crust.

Becki thought it tasted like an awesome Brownie.
