My friend Frances' 6 egg Chocolate Cake recipe


Photograph to follow.

2 tblspns. milk
8 oz good quality chocolate (I use 1 1/2 bars Lidl's raspberry chocolate, which is 70% cocoa solids)
6 eggs, separated
4 ground almonds
6 tblspns. sugar

Break chocolate into pieces and add milk.  Put into a bowl over boiling pan to melt (or zap in microwave).  Stir regularly.  Whisk egg whites to stiff peak.  Take choc. off heat, add sugar and almonds and combine well.  Add egg yolks and mix well.  Fold in egg whites with a spatula.

Put into a well-greased and lined 8" cake tin and cook for 40 mins at 180 deg. F.

This goes wonderfully fudgy after a day or so and is wonderful with fresh cream or ice cream.


  1. I've just found your query about adding a page. If your have a look at Frugal In Norfolks page of Blog Tutorials it should help. I can't remember what I did! but I'll have another look and come back to you

  2. Guess what I want right now, I will wait till tomorrow and make it for pudding. I am sure that it will be wonderful with cream and raspberries.Thank goodness I can still get a spoon to my mouth.

  3. Thanks Sue, I'll do that tomorrow (just off to bed now as we have an early start).

    Pam - you won't be disappointed, I promise!

  4. Martin loves chocolate cake I might treat him :-) if hes good

  5. Dawn - this is a GOOD one. If you use the Lidl raspberry dark chocolate, think of stirring in a few crushed raspberries too for extra scrummtiousness.
