About Me
I'm a Melbourne boy, hailing from St Kilda with one ex, one current wife and four kids. Love the outdoors and making new discoveries. I cook a lot at home (cheers from wife) and do some preserving, mostly jams, pickles and fruit liqueurs. This is the diary of a cooking journey.

Who's Six Then?

M with friends and a very large and luscious flourless chocolate cake.

Edited to Add:

Flourless Chocolate Cake

200 g (8 oz) dark chocolate
100 g (4 oz) butter
100 g (4 oz) caster sugar
100 g (4 oz) almond meal
1 teaspoon vanilla extract or
2 tablespoons brandy
5 eggs, separated

Place the chocolate and butter in a bowl and place bowl over a pot of simmering water, don't let the bowl touch the water. Stir until melted. Add caster sugar, almond meal, flavouring of choice and the egg yolks into the chocolate/butter mixture and stir to combine. Whip egg whites until soft peaks, then fold one third into chocolate mixture with a metal spoon, then fold in the rest of the egg whites. This helps to ensure greater volume in the cake. Take an 200 mm (8") diameter springform tin and line the bottom with baking paper and butter the sides. Pour in the mixture and bake in a 160 c (320 f) oven for 45 minutes or until the cake starts to crack.

Fab looking cake! What's the picture on it? Being a real nosey Parker here but what kind of icing did you use? Was thinking of making the flourless choccie cake (wondering if your recipe is the same as mine) for a friend's b-day but wanted to "disguise it" as a joke. Am looking for inspiration now.

Hi mm, thanks. It was simple water icing, just mix enough water with icing sugar so that it leaves a ribbon trail when lifted. The original recipe was from Jill Duplaix which I managed to lose, so just went from memory. The picture is an edible Bratz doll transfer which sticks to the icing before it dries. D got it from the supermarket.

Such an adorable picture!

And the cake looks so yummy. I have never tried a flourless cake, I am a little nervous to......it sounds delicious though.

Hi Angela, Yes it was a great shot, they all look so innocent...for now. You should have a go at a flourless cake, they are pretty easy and because they don't rise much, it never looks like you've got it wrong!
