WHAT TO DO:

Before beginning with this recipe, make sure you have preheated your oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease your cake tin with a pinch of coconut oil.

This has got to be the easiest cake recipe to date, so if you’re not quite Jamie Oliver in the kitchen, don’t stress. Let’s just say if I can do it, so can you!

Mix all of the above ingredients together, adding each ingredient slowly, one by one and beat/mix with a hand whisk until all lumps and bumps have disappeared.

After that, simply pour your mixture into your greased tin and bake for 35-40 minutes.

TOPPING/” ICING”:

  • 100g chocolate (Lindt 70% dark chocolate)

While your cake is cooling down on a grill rack, break your slab of chocolate into squares and melt in a bowl, over a pot of boiling water. When melted, pour/drizzle over your cake when placed on a serving stand. Add a sprinkle of almonds as a finishing touch and for decoration.

Finally, serve, and ENJOY!
