Makes about 24

  • 400g dark chocolate, broken into pieces
  • 300g unsalted butter, diced
  • 5 eggs
  • 500g caster sugar
  • 100g flour
  • 100g hazelnuts, halved

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C.

Butter a 30cm baking tin and line it with greaseproof paper.

Melt the chocolate and butter in a heatproof bowl over a pan of gently simmering water, then allow to cool to room temperature.

Using an electric beater, beat the eggs and sugar until white and mousse-like. Mix in the melted chocolate and butter. Finally, fold in the flour and hazelnuts.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 – 45 minutes. The top should be crisp to the touch. Leave to cool before slicing.

Made for builder Michael to thank him for building the bookcases and putting in the new garage door.
