- 170g (6oz) Dark Chocolate (70% cocoa solids)
- 75g (2½ oz) Unsalted Butter
- 4 Eggs
- 100g (3½ oz) Light Muscovado sugar
- 30g Plain Flour
- 1-2 cups Raspberries
- 2 tbsp sugar (add more to taste)
- ½ lemon juice
- 4 oz Raspberry flavoured yogurt
- 6 oz Mascarpone Cheese
- 2 Egg Whites
- 3 sheets Gelatin (optional but may turn out with yogurt-y effect)
- First start on the mousse.
- 1. With a hand blender (you could just use a normal blender), blend the raspberries, lemon juice, yogurt, and sugar. Set to one side.
- 2. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until stiff. Then gently fold into the raspberry mix.
- 3. Place the gelatin into the pan and cover with water about 1/2 cm above. Put the heat on low and melt the gelatin. Then mix this in with the raspberry mix.
- 4. Cover mix with cling film and set in fridge for about 3 hours.
- While it is setting, start on the torte.
- 1.Preheat the oven to 180c (gas mark 4). Grease a 23cm cake tin and line with grease proof paper.
- 2. Break up the chocolate into small pieces with the butter into a heat proof bowl. Set bowl over a deep pan of almost boiling water and melt. When fully melted, mix until smooth.
- 3. Meanwhile, beat the eggs and sugar with electric mixer in a large bowl until the mixture has increased in volume. It should leave a trail on the top for about 7 seconds when the beaters are lifted out.
- 4. Fold in the melted chocolate to the whisked mixture. Gradually sift the flour over mix and fold until just combined.
- 5. Turn mix into the cake tin, spreading flat as possible. Bake for 15- 20 minutes until the top feels firm to the touch. Leave to cool.
- 6. Remove cake from tin and sift icing sugar decoratively on top. This cake can be kept refrigerated for 2-3 days. When ready to serve, pipe the mousse decoratively by the side of a slice. If you don't have a piping bag, cut a corner 1/2 cm away from corner and spoon mousse into bag so it can be squeezed out.
