What a lovely weekend we had! My mum was visiting me all the way from Lithuania and we were invited to a one amazing Lola’s and David’s wedding…. Aww! But once the weekend is over I always think of the ways to prolong it. I baked this chocolate amaretto cake (who does’t like chocolate?), which defiantly deserves some attention ;). Try it out for yourself!

CHOCOLATE AMARETTO CAKE

  • 115g unsalted butter (softened)
  • 115g caster sugar
  • 3 eggs (separated)
  • 100g ground almonds
  • 40g flour
  • 150g dark chocolate (melted)
  • 2tbsp amaretto (almond liqueur)

(For the chocolate glaze)

  • 90ml double cream
  • 100g dark chocolate (chopped)
  • 10g butter
  • 1tbs amaretto (almond liqueur)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. In the bowl  or food processor cream butter with sugar.
  3. Add egg yolks, almonds, flour, chocolate and amaretto to a creamed butter and mix well to combine.
  4. In separate bowl whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.Carefully fold the egg whites into the mixture.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and spread evenly. Bake for 30-35min, until the edges are puffed but the centre is still soft.
  6. Cool the cake on the wire rack before glazing.
  7. To make the chocolate glaze, bring the cream to the boil in a saucepan. Remove the cream from the heat and add the chocolate, butter and amaretto. Whisk everything until smooth.
  8. Pour the glaze over the cake to cover it completely. Decorate with the bits of fruit or serve it with ice-cream while still warm.
