Trieste and Napoli Limited Edition Flourless Chocolate Cake

These two seductive flourless chocolate cake recipes, created by James Kidman, Group Executive Chef for Doltone House Group, are the perfect accompaniament to our new Limited Edition Grands Crus, Napoli and Trieste.

Preparation (10 persons)

BASIC CAKE RECIPE

 

250g of dark chocolate

2 capsules of Nespresso Napoli or Trieste (40ml espresso extraction)

75ml of milk

4 eggs

100g of castor sugar

4 egg whites

150g of castor sugar

130ml of cream

1 extra capsule of Nespresso Napoli or Trieste (optional for meringue)

 

Method:

• Line a 30cm by 15cm tin with baking paper so the cake does not stick.

• Melt the chocolate over a double boiler then add the Nespresso coffee and milk. Allow to come to room temperature.

• Whisk the whole eggs with the first sugar until light and fluffy and pale in colour, add to the chocolate mixture.

• Whisk the egg whites with the other sugar until stiff peaks are formed. Add the additional  Nespresso coffee into the meringue for an extra hit. Fold the meringue through the chocolate mixture.

• Whisk the cream to firm peaks and fold through the chocolate mixture.

• Bake at 160 degrees for 30 minutes. Test with a skewer. The cake needs to moist but not dry.

 

Serving Suggestions

• Dust the out turned cake with either cocoa or icing sugar and serve with berries and fresh double cream.
