Leave a comment



This recipe is from Master Chef. from Caterina.

The first time we made it together with Caterina. Look, guests seem to be happy! 🙂

So,

Ingredents:

  • 150 gr dark chocolate of the best quality (70 + %cacao) I use Green&Black one.
  • 125 gr unsalted butter
  • 5 eggs separated
  • 175 gr soft brown sugar (ideal for cooking) 
  • 175 gr ground almonds
  • 100 ml of amaretto + 1 tbs for amaretto cream
  • Double cream 100 ml
  • Rasberries
  • icing sugar

Make sure you have the right baking tin. Check the Cooking tips section please.

Cooking:

1. Preheat the oven to 150 C. Butter the baking tin or line it with the baking paper. (I usually butter the lose base tin).   

2. Melt the chocolate and butter in a large bowl placed over the saucepan of simmering water. Once melted, remove from heat and cool slightly. 

3. Whisk the egg whites until they form peaks. We used a regular food processor for this and it worked just perfectly! 

4. Mix the sugar and almonds in the chocolate mixture, then stir in the egg yolks and the 100 ml of Amaretto.

5. Finally, fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and back for about 30 minutes or until firm on the top and the screwer comes out clean.

Remove the cake from the oven and allow to cool.

6. Whip the cream with sugar 1 tbs of Amaretto.

7. To serve dust with the icing sugar. Allow guests to help themselves with the raspberries and whipped cream. Or add some cream and raspberries on each plate before serving.

your guests will never forget you 😉

Buon Appetito!!!


P.S. In the original recipe there is one more ingredient: Passion fruit. If you want to use it, blend its flesh in food processor. Then add icing sugar. When serving the cake, drizzle the passion fruit mix over.
