How to make Jamie’s chocolate cake – step by step
Before you start, make sure to preheat your oven to 180 degrees or gas mark 4.
Step 1: Get a non-stick tray, roughly 25 x 25 cm. Jamie advises that if you don’t have a non-stick tray, you can rub some butter and flour all over it to prevent sticking. Then add a piece of baking paper on top.
Step 2: Blend the hazelnuts in a food processor until you have a smooth texture. Then add the chocolate, butter, flour and a pinch of salt to the mix. Keep blending.
Step 3: After that add the milk and the sugar and mix further. Once your mixture is blended well, place it in the tray. Jamie advises that you can add additional nuts or dried fruits to the mix.
Step 4: Bake the cake for 18 minutes in the middle of the oven.
Step 5: Take the cake out of the oven and grate dark chocolate on top. Serve with fresh Greek yogurt or fruits of your choice.
