DIRECTIONS

  • Line an ungreased deep 20cm round cake pan w/greaseproof paper-do not grease paper.
  • Melt combined chocolate and butter in heatproof bowl over hot water, or microwave.
  • Cool to room temperature.
  • Combine eggs and sugar in bowl, beat w/electric mixer until thick and creamy, fold in sifted flour.
  • Then fold in chocolate mixture.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan, bake at 180°C/350°F/gas mark 4-for 20mins or until cake is crusty on top and soft in the centre.
  • Leave cake to become cold in pan.
  • Cover cake pan w/foil and freeze for several hours or overnight.
  • Just before serving, place cake pan in hot water to loosen cake (for me this step wasn't necessary, I used foil instead of greaseproof paper to line my pan, and enough of it was hanging over for me to just cover the cake and freeze, which I just later pulled, and the cake came out w/it! No hot water dipping!) Invert cake onto serving dish and fill centre w/extra fresh fruit if desired.
  • BERRY SAUCE: Blend or process berries w/icing sugar until smooth, strain.
  • Pour berry sauce over slices cut, and serve-- Mmmm.
