On deciding what to do next using my crisper plate, I thought I’ve not really tried a cake?? Would it work?? Only 1 way to find out………………………..results were fab, tasty and baked in 10 minutes…….revelation!

 

Serves 12-16

200g Dark Chocolate – Melted (I used 70% cocoa)

240g butter

45g Walnuts

45g Hazelnuts

45g Almonds

170g golden caster sugar

1 tbsp flour

4 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

pinch salt

 

  1. If you have an Induction hob, melt chocolate in a pan on No. 1, if not melt using a glass bowl over boiling water. Once nearly melted add in butter and melt through, stirring a couple of times. Remove from heat and allow to cool.  20170917_181232
  2. Chop nuts into very small pieces or use a processor and pulse but make sure not to make into crumbs.
  3. Separate egg yolks from egg whites
  4. One at a time add egg yolks to the chocolate and butter mix, stirring continuously.
  5. Then stir in vanilla, sugar, nuts & flour
  6. Whisk the egg whites together until stiff peaks, then gently fold into your chocolate mixture.                                                             20170917_181713
  7. Pour the mixture onto the crisper plate and cook on dynamic crisp setting for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cooled remove from plate, slice and serve with some lovely whipped cream or ice cream if you prefer. YUMMY!!!!
