These biscotti-like cookies are infused with vanilla, flecked with orange zest and studded with almonds. Once mixed, the elastic-like dough is formed into long rolls, brushed with egg yolk and baked until golden. After they're removed from the oven, the cookies are sliced, returned to the tray and baked again. They will keep for several days in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Serve them with a pot of French press coffee for dunking.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams dark chocolate
  • 100 grams butter
  • 200 grams sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.
  2. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until foamy.
  3. Add the chocolate/butter mixture.
  4. Add the cornstarch.
  5. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt to stiff peaks, and fold them into the egg yolk batter carefully.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes, the first 5 minutes at 200C then lower the temperature to 180C for the remainder of the time. The outside of the cake will have a crisp crust, while the inside will be a chocolaty creamy center. Serve warm with cold custard or whipped cream, or simply sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Being my first time baking this creamy chocolate cake; I was very happy with the way it came out. It was filled with a delicious chocolate oozing through it and the ideal amount of moisture to it. It was purely the best 4 star creamy chocolate cake I have baked and will be jamming out another one in a couple of weeks.
