Chocolate Torte

This tastes much like a cheesecake, but without the cheese! & a little more complicated - but it is definitely worth it!


Start by pre-heating the oven to 160degreesC/gas3 and grease an 8" spring form cake tin

Then blitz the Biscuits and mix thoroughly with the melted Butter and press into the tin and leave in the fridge to cool for at least 30 minutes

Put 2/5 of the Icing sugar into a saucepan with the Water on a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved

Then add the Chocolate and Butter to the pan and heat until everything has melted - leave to cool

Seperate the Eggs and whisk the Whites half way and add the last of the Icing sugar and the Cider vinegar, then whisk to the full

Add the yolks to the Chocolate mixture then mix in a spoonful of the Whites to loosen the mixture

Fold in the rest of the Whites and pour into prepared tin and bake for 50 minutes

Leave to cool in the tin then cut into slices
