  • 285g dark chocolate, chopped
  • 570ml double cream
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 170g caster sugar
  • Cocoa powder
  • 50g amoretti biscuits, crushed
  • Creme frache, to serve
  • Amaretto liqueur, to serve


1. Preheat oven to 130ºC. Put chocolate in a large bowl over a pan of simmering water and leave for 5 minutes without stirring. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

2. Whisk yolks and caster sugar in a large bowl until thick, pale and fluffy. Gradually fold chocolate mixture into yolk mixture until just combined. Pour mixture into a well-greased, lined 25cm springform tin. Put tin on a large baking tray.

3. Bake tart for 45 minutes. The tart will wobble slightly and have a fudge-like consistency when cooked. Remove tart from oven and cool for 20 minutes before refrigerating for at least 2 hours.

4. To serve, dust tart with cocoa and sprinkle over crushed biscuits. Slice tart into slivers and put on serving plates. Serve with dollops of creme frache and drizzle with amaretto liqueur. Enjoy tart with a glass of amaretto.
