200g self raising flour 200g butter 200g caster sugar 3 or 4 eggs (depends how big your eggs are) a bunch of cocoa powder (until it looks a nice chocolate colour) if don't have cocoa powder just melt about 50g chocolate mix butter caster sugar and eggs together, then fold in the flour and add the chocolate put mixture into two cake tins Place in an oven at about 200oC for 20 minutes, remove and decorate with melted chocolate on top and chocolate buttercream icing in the middle (if you wish)

This is my ultimate recipe , please take yime to read it , because it took me time to type it . Things You'll Need 1/8 tsp. salt 3/4 c. sugars 6 eggs - separated 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butters - at room temperature 1 1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. finely ground walnuts 6 oz. chopped semisweet chocolate Instructions 1: Position a rack on the bottom shelf of the oven. 2: Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper. Generously butter the sides of the pan and the parchment paper covering the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle the sides and bottom with 2 tbsp. ground walnuts. 3: Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. 4: Pour water to a depth of 2 inches into the bottom pot of a double boiler. Bring the water to a boil. 5: Melt the chocolate in the top pot of the double boiler. Stir until smooth. Cool slightly. 6: Place the butter in a mixing bowl. Cream the butter using an electric mixer. Gradually add the sugar and beat at medium speed for 2 minutes. 7: Add the egg yolks one at a time, beating after each addition. 8: Stir in the melted chocolate and remaining walnuts to just incorporate. Set aside. 9: In another bowl, beat the egg whites and salt to soft peaks with an electric mixer. 10: Temper the chocolate batter by folding in 1/2 c. egg whites. Then gradually fold in the remaining egg whites. 11: Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake 20 minutes in the bottom shelf of the oven. 12: Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and bake 50 minutes more, until a fork inserted into the center comes out covered with a thick, moist and crumbly coating. 13: Remove from oven. Set on a wire rack and cool 30 minutes. Loosen the sides of the cake by running a thin knife all around the pan. Remove the pan sides. 14: Slide the cake off the bottom of the pan onto a cake dish or platter. Allow it to cool completely. 15: Serve slices at room temperature, in large bowls with whipped cream. Hope you like it .
