  1. 360g butter
  2. 400g dark chocolate
  3. 150g bitter chocolate (85 percent cocoa minimum)
  4. 430g light brown sugar
  5. 90ml water
  6. 1 tbsp cinnamon (you can also use ginger or cardamom)
  7. 7 eggs
  8. salt (pinch)
  1. Preheat over to 170 degrees celcius.
  2. Line base and sides of 25cm springform pan with baking parchment.
  3. Place butter and both chocolates in a large mixing bowl over a pan of gently boiling water (bottom of the bowl should not touch the water).
  4. Meanwhile, put sugar and water in a small saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil.
  5. Pour the sugar syrup over the chocolate/butter and stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
  6. Separate eggs, placing whites in a mixing bowl. Add yolks to the chocolate mixture. Stir in ground spice.
  7. Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and whisk them until they hold firm peaks.
  8. Fold the egg whites into the chocolate mix and pour about 75 percent of the mixture into the spring-form pan and place in the oven for about 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.
  9. Flatten the top of the cake with a spoon or palette knife and then pour the remaining batter on top and put back in the oven for 25-30 minutes. The top layer should be set but still a bit 'wet'.
  10. Leave to cool completely before removing from the tin.
  1. Serve with fresh cream and fruit.
