- 1 bar of 70% dark chocolate
- 125 ml ripe fruity extra virgin olive oil from Nyons
- 200 g sugar
- 2 to 3 tablespoons of flour
- 5 eggs
- A pinch of salt
Preheat your oven to 180ºC
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. When it is melted, add the olive oil slowly, 150g of sugar and mix with a whisk. Remove the preparation from the heat.
Then add your 2 spoonfuls of flour. If the mixture is still too liquid, add a third one, not very full. Mix well and leave to cool for a few moments.
Separate the eggs and add the egg yolks to the mixture, making sure that it is not too hot so that they do not cook.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff, slowly adding the remaining sugar.
Using a large spatula, add the whisked egg whites to the chocolate mixture.
Lightly oil a cake tin with olive oil. Pour in the dough and bake your chocolate and olive oil cake in the oven for about 40 minutes. Check the baking time with a knife.
After baking, do not remove your cake from the mould immediately; let it cool down to prevent it from breaking.
