The three c’s: chocolate, chilli, cake, followed by the three o’s….ooo!
180g dark chocolate
1 shot of espresso
90g plain flour
5 eggs (separated)
200g golden castor sugar
2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinammon
2 tsp dried chilli flakes
1: Start melting the chocolate, add the espresso and then the butter.
2: When the melted mixture is completely smooth quickly add the egg yokes.
3: In another bowl beat the egg whites until they are stiff and then fold in the sugar.
4: Pour the chocolate mixture into the egg whites/ sugar mixture.
5: Sift all the other ingredients together and stir them into the chocolate egg mixture but gently so you don’t deflate it.
6: Bake it in a springform tin at 180C for 35 minutes.
Many thanks to Archie McDiarmid for his chocolate chilli experimentation!
