    Chocolate cakes seem to be the same after a while but this one has strawberry coulis and mint in it which gives it a totally unique taste.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 230g cooking chocolate
    • 5 eggs
    • 200g caster sugar
    • 80g butter
    • 100ml strawberry coulis
    • 50g plain flour
    • 10 mint leaves, very finely diced

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a cake tin.
    2. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler over medium heat. Meanwhile, separate the egg whites from the yolks. Whisk the sugar with the egg yolks until foamy in a bowl. Whisk the egg whites until stiff in another bowl.
    3. Remove the melted chocolate from the double boiler and add the butter. Stir until melted. Stir in the strawberry sauce, flour and then the mint in the chocolate mixture.
    4. Gently stir in the egg whites into the chocolate mixture, lift the batter while stirring to keep the batter smooth.
