Known in our family as ‘Kathleen Keller’s chocolate cake’ (after the friend who first made it for us), this cake has almost no flour in it – but lots of chocolate!
200g ground nuts
200g dark chocolate
1 tbsp flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix together nuts, sugar, flour, baking powder and eggs.
Melt butter and chocolate (in double boiler or in microwave).
Add to dry ingredients.
Bake at 170ºC for about 30 minutes or until knife comes out clean.
To add to the decadence, I often add ‘Auntie Maree’s frosting’:
Cream together 100g marg and 100g icing sugar.
Add 100g melted chocolate.
Smooth over cake.
Cut into thin slices and enjoy.
Decadent and delicious!
