The perfect recipe for chocolate cake little cooking required and amazingly tasty results, making enough to feed 8 hungry mouths!

Ingredients:

•    340g Prestat chocolate
•    200g butter
•    90g each hazelnuts, almonds and Brazil nuts
•    2 free range eggs
•    75g raisins
•    50g natural-dye glace cherries
•    75g digestive biscuits, roughly crumbled

Instructions:

•    Layer a 20cm cake tin with baking parchment (not grease proof as it will stick to the cake)
•    Melt 230g of the chocolate and all the butter in a pan over a moderate heat
•    Place the nuts on a baking sheet and toast under a grill until the skin blisters. At this point, rub the nuts with a cloth and discard any skin that rubs off. Return the nuts to the grill and toast again until golden.
•    When the chocolate is fully melted, remove it from the heat. Mix in the nuts and the cherries (keep back a few for decoration).
•    Beat the eggs lightly with a fork, and then add to the chocolate.
•    Finally, stir in the crumbled biscuits, and then spoon the mix into the cake tin. Leave it in the fridge over night to set.
•    Once the cake is completely set, melt the remaining chocolate over a bowl of simmering water and then pour the chocolate over the cake and decorate the cake with the remaining berries.
