    1. Cake: Preheat oven to 150 degrees C. Fill a ovenproof bowl with water and put it on the bottom of the oven to get extra moisture.

    3. Mix all the dry ingredients and add to the chocolate and egg mixture. Tip it all into a greased 25cm springform cake tin.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until a tester comes out clean, 60 to 90 minutes.
    5. Glaze: Melt the rest of the chocolate and stir in the 100g of butter. Spread it on the cake and store it in a cool place until the glaze is solid.
    6. Optional Garnish Mix the balsamic and sugar syrup, add water if needed. Cut the strawberries into half and let them marinate in the vinegar mix for about 30 minutes. Serve with the cake.
