METHOD

  1. Melt the chocolate and butter together over a low heat on a saucepan. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly before adding the vanilla extract. 20170305_085503
  2. In another bowl beat the eggs, cream and sweetener together for 3-4 minutes (I used a hand blender). It will go frothy and remain runny.

  3. Slowly add the egg mixture to the chocolate mixture in the saucepan, stirring all the time. As you add more egg mixture, the chocolate and butter will thicken to the consistency of custard.
  4. Pour into a prepared tin round cake tin. Grease a loose bottom cake tin with butter then make sure the tin is connected correctly to stop the mixture from leaking. 20170305_085600
  5. Bake at 180C/ 350F for 20 minutes, or more depending on your oven. Bake until it is just set in the centre, do not overcook the cake.
