Ingredients125g butter, softened
150g brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla essence
100g dark chocolate, melted
100g sour cream
2 tbsp cocoa
100g self-raising flour
125g almond meal
250g chocolate, broken into small bits
PreparationPreheat the oven to 170°C. Grease and line a 22cm springform cake tin or similar.
Cream the butter and sugar with the vanilla. Beat in the eggs one at time. If the mix looks a bit curdled, don’t worry, it isn’t; it’ll come back together when we add the flour, if not before. Beat in the chocolate, then the sour cream until just combined. Fold in the sifted cocoa and flour and then the almond meal. Scrape into the cake tin and smooth the top a bit. Bake in preheated oven for about 40 mins or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean. Ice with the ganache (see below).
Heat the cream in a small saucepan and when it comes to the boil, whisk in the chocolate, returning to the heat if necessary to melt it. Stir until the mixture is smooth. Allow to set just enough to be able to spread over the cake.
