FRANCES' CHOCOLATE CAKE
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.
