Really Easy Chocolate Cake with Chilli, Salt and Tequila

Award-winning chef Stevie Parle and professional spice blender Emma Grazette head to Oaxaca, Mexico, discovering regional varieties of chillies. Inspired by local home cooking, they create a sexy Chilli Chocolate Cake with Tequila and Salt.

Ingredients

  • 200G (7oz) dark chocolate with 70 per cent cocoa solids

  • 200g (7oz) butter

  • 2 tsp dried chilli flakes

  • 4 eggs

  • 150g (5oz) sugar

  • 3 tbsp ground almonds

  • 1 tbsp plain flour

  • A pinch of sea salt

  • 2 tbasp tequila, plus a little extra to serve

Method

  • 1.

    Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Grease a 23cm (9in) round cake tin and line with baking paper.

  • 2.

    Melt the chocolate, butter and chilli in a glass or metal bowl over a pan of barely simmering water (or in a microwave). The bowl must not touch the water as this will split the mixture. Remove from the heat, stir and leave for a few minutes to cool slightly.

  • 3.

    Stir in the eggs one by one, then the sugar, followed by the almonds, flour, a pinch of salt and the tequila. Pour the batter into the cake tin and sprinkle over a generous amount of salt. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes, or until an inserted skewer comes out clean.

  • 4.

    Leave to cool and just before you serve, drizzle a little tequila over each slice.
