We very much fancy a slice of this Dense Chocolate Cake

Posted by Sunsweet - Friday, October 25, 2002

Our Dense Chocolate Cake is wonderfully moist, super chocolatey and surprisingly simple to make. But there’s something that’s even more surprising. Our cake is a gluten-free bake and each delicious slice contains fewer than 400 calories. And it smells amazing while baking!

Ingredients

200 g dark chocolate
100 g butter, cubed
1 vanilla pod
5 eggs
1 pinch of salt
100 g sugar
150 g California prunes
3 tbsp. cocoa powder

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 160° C (convection oven 140° C). Line spring form with baking paper. Chop chocolate. Cut butter into cubes. Place both into a bowl and melt over hot water. Cut vanilla pod in half and scrape out the seeds.
  2. Separate eggs and beat the egg whites, salt and sugar until stiff. Remove chocolate from water, allow to slightly cool, and then stir in the egg yolks. Stir in prunes, vanilla seeds, and cocoa powder, carefully fold in egg white.
  3. Pour the cake mixture into the springform baking tin and bake for 40 minutes.  Allow the cake to cool and serve dusted with confectioner's sugar.
