As this is happening, melt your chocolate in a bowl, bain-marie style and set aside.
  • Step 2 Add the flour and baking powder to the mixture and beat on a low speed, add the ground almonds and the orange zest and keep mixing. Add your melted chocolate and mix again to incorporate all the ingredients.
  • Step 3 Place your paper cases on a tray and fill each case with the cake mixture. Fill each paper case around ยพ full so they can rise and not spill over. Bake for twenty five minutes, or until cakes are cooked and set aside to cool.
  • Step 4 I had some chocolate topping available from a hamper so I used this over the cakes and added the eggs.
