  • dark chocolate, chopped 500gm
  • unsalted butter 125gm
  • eggs, separated 6
  • caster sugar 90gm
  • cream 150ml
  • vanilla essence 1 tsp
  • cream of tartar 1/2 tsp


  • dark chocolate, chopped 450gm
  • unsalted butter 175gm
  • cream 600ml
  • liquid glucose 1/4 cup

Melt the chocolate and butter in a pan and set aside to cool slightly. Beat the egg yolks and sugar until thick and pale. Stir in the cream, vanilla essence and cooled chocolate mixture. Whisk the egg whites and cream of tartar in a clean, dry bowl until soft peaks form. In batches, gently fold the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, trying to keep as much air in the mixture as possible. Spread into a greased 8” pan and bake at 180 degrees C for 25 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out with a few moist crumbs. Transfer to a wire rack and cool in the pan. Meanwhile, for the ganache, melt chocolate and butter in a pan until smooth. Remove from heat and set aside. Gently heat cream and glucose in a separate pan. Pour over the chocolate mixture and stir until smooth. Chill for 30 minutes or until thick. Remove cake from the pan and spread the ganache over the cooled cake.
