Ingredients

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 40 mins
Serves: 4

  • 225g dark chocolate
  • 4 large fresh eggs
  • 110g milk chocolate, chopped into pieces
  • 100g self-raising flour
  • 225g brown sugar
  • 225g butter, chopped into pieces
  • 75g hazelnuts, roughly chopped
  • 110g white chocolate, chopped into pieces

Method

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
  2. Grease and line a 22-cm square cake tin.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and butter together in a bowl set over simmering water.
  4. Beat the eggs and the sugar together until light and fluffy.
  5. Fold in the melted chocolate and mix well.
  6. Sieve the self-raising flour and gently fold it into the chocolate and egg mixture.
  7. Fold in the chopped chocolate and hazelnuts with the flour and mix well.
  8. Do not over mix as the air will be knocked out of the mixture.
  9. Pour the mixture into the prepared cake tin and cook for 35-40 minutes until the centre of the cake feels firm on the surface but with an element of softness underneath.
  10. Allow the cake to cool slightly in the tin and then after a few minutes remove from the tin and cut into even sized squares. Dust generously with icing sugar and serve with ice-cream and chocolate sauce.
