“I found this recipe in an old French cook book, it uses no flour (hence the gluten free) and its so delicious, that it just melts in the mouth. I've added a little more chocolate and less butter. Be warned no matter how much you make, you'll never have any left over! (**important**-gluten can be found in some cheaper brands of chocolate please check carefully)”

  1. Preheat the oven 180c.
  2. Break chocolate into pieces and melt with the butter in a bowl over hot water mix till smooth. Leave to cool slightly.
  3. Whisk the egg whites till really stiff and slowly add the sugar (this will add volume to the egg whites).
  4. Fold in (with a metal spoon) the egg yolks and finally the chocolate mixture.
  5. (Can add almond meal to stop cake sinking).
  6. Pour into a buttered (leak proof) 9inch cake tin or any oven dish lined with baking/grease proof paper.
