How to make chocolate cake by Gino D'AcampoUsing a heatproof bowl place the pistachio's and cover with boiling water, they need to soak for 3 mins. After draining peel off the skin and roughly chop.
Warm the oven to gas mark 4/180 degrees. In a 23cm shallow cake tin grease with some butter.
In a large bowl placed over hot water, melt the chocolate and butter. In another large bowl whisk together the icing sugar and egg yolks, until pale and fluffy. In a different large bowl mix the egg whites until firm.
In the melted chocolate add the icing sugar mixture and stir really well. You will then need to add the chopped up pistachio's and almonds, and then with a metal spoon gently fold in the egg whites.
Place all the chocolate cake mix in the cake tin and place in the oven. When a skewer comes out of the centre clean remove the cake from the oven.
After the cake has allowed to cool for 10 mins, place gently on a plate. This is best served at room temperature, dusted with icing sugar.
You can also add double cream or mascarpone and a glass of your favourite vino.
