Ingredients

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
7 Ounce(oz)  dark chocolate
2 Teaspoon(t)  dry instant coffee
1 Cup(c)  unsalted butter, softened
1 Cup(c)  super fine sugar
4   eggs, separated
1 1/4 Cup(c)  almonds, ground
1/2 Cup(c)  cornstarch
1/4 Cup(c)  confectioners' sugar, for dusting
1/4 Cup(c)  creme fraiche, to serve

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8 inch loose bottomed cake pan and line the base with parchment paper. Place the chocolate and coffee in a bowl over a pan of simmering water and melt. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs yolks, one at a time, then stir in the chocolate and coffee mixture, almonds, and cornstarch. In a large, clean bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold a quarter of the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture to loosen it, then gradually fold in the remainder. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until it springs back when touched. Cover the cake with baking parchment after 50 minutes. Allow to cool completely before carefully removing it from the pan. Cut the cake into wedges, dust with a little confectioners' sugar, and serve with creme fraiche or other cream topping, if liked.
