    Makes: 1 Serves: 2 - 3

    Ingredients

    1 tbsp cocoa,

    2 eggs,

    2 egg yolks,

    3 tbsp caster sugar,

    3 tbsp plain flour

    100g dark chocolate

    100g unsalted butter

    Method

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 ̊C, gas mark 4. Put 1 tbsp cocoa, 2 eggs, 2 egg yolks, 3 tbsp caster sugar, 3 tbsp plain flour and a pinch of salt in a food processor with 100g each melted unsalted butter and dark chocolate; whizz until smooth.
