    Makes: 16


    180g lightly salted butter, cut into cubes, plus extra for greasing
    100g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
    370g dark chocolate (70% cocoa solids),chopped
    180g muscovado sugar
    4 eggs, plus 1 egg yolk
    100g ground almonds
    15g cocoa powder
    1 ¼ tsp baking powder
    1 x ½ orange, juice
    1 tbsp dark rum
    80g mixed nuts, such as pecans, walnuts, almonds and pistachios


    1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4. Lightly butter a 23cm square cake tin and dust with flour. Melt the butter and 300g of the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Remove from the heat, then whisk in the sugar until smooth.

    3. Pour the mixture into the tin, scatter over the nuts and bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out with just a few crumbs.

    4. Run a knife around the edge of the tin, then leave to cool. Chill for 4 - 6 hours or overnight. Slice into squares and serve.

    Shell-on nuts keep for months. But if you happen to have a glut, shell them and stir into runny honey. Spoon over yogurt or ice cream, or serve simply with fresh fruit.
