Subject: Chocolate & Almond Cake with Sweet Espresso Sauce
 

If you’re a fan of coffee, chocolate and nuts, then this is most certainly the cake for you. Delicious gooey chocolate with the light flavour of almonds, all enhanced with rich aromatic espresso sauce, simply divine.

Ingredients – Serves 8
3 medium free range eggs
340g caster sugar
185g good quality dark chocolate
185g unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
200g self raising flour
140g ground almonds
250ml freshly brewed espresso – add 2 tbsp caster sugar to sweeten
Whipped cream to serve


Method
  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 180°C
  2. Grease a 20cm non-stick spring-form tin and line with baking paper (base only)
  3. Add the chocolate and butter to a saucepan and gently heat stirring continuously until completely melted
  4. Place the caster sugar and eggs into a large mixing bowl and using an electric hand whisk, beat until pale and thick
  5. Fold the flour, chocolate and almonds into the eggs until smooth
  6. Spoon the mixture into the tin, place in the oven and bake for around 50 mins or until just firm
  7. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly in the tin for 20 mins or so
  8. Add the espresso to a pan, bring to the boil then simmer for around a minute until a syrup like consistency is achieved
  9. Remove the cake from the tin and discard the baking paper
  10. Slice the cake at the table and serve warm with whipped cream and a drizzle of the hot espresso sauce.

Why are you double posting your recipes?

Look like good recipes though, so thanks for the additions.

Sorry. This was a genuine mistake. Clicked back on two posts and it double posted. I have tried to remove the ones which double posted but was unable to do so. Apologies again.
