Want to try it yourself? Here’s the recipe by food blogger Eloise Head:


  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 500g dark chocolate
  • 7 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 100g granulated sugar


  1. Melt butter and chocolate in the microwave or in a bain-marie and leave to cool. Add eggs and sugar to a separate bowl and whisk vigorously until the mixture triples in size.
  2. Mix batters together, adding the chocolate into the egg mixture one third at a time.
  3. Cover the outside of an eight-inch cake tin in foil and place it inside a large baking tray, half-filled with boiling water.
  4. Pour the mixture into the cake tin and bake at 150 degrees Celsius for 30 to 35 minutes. It’s ready when the edges are firm to touch.
  5. Leave the cake to cool in the tin and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Dust with icing sugar, then serve with raspberries and vanilla ice cream.
