A Frightful Flourless Gateau recipe

  • 200g good quality dark chocolate pieces
  • 150g dairy free margarine
  • 5 eggs, separate the yolks and whites
  • 165g sugar
  • 150g ground almonds

  • Preheat the oven to 180ºC.  Grease a round baking tray (measuring 22cm).
  • In a saucepan, melt the chocolate and margarine over a very low heat.  Allow to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Beat the egg yolks and sugar until you have a creamy mixture.  Add the chocolate and margarine mixture and mix in the ground almonds.
  • In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until you have soft peaks.  Mix the egg white mixture into the cake batter.
  • Pour into the greased oven tin and bake for approximately 55 minutes.
  • Once baked, allow to cool for at least 15 minutes in the tin, before removing from the tin to cool further.
