Fluffy Chocolate Almond Cake

The husband likes his chocolate cake a certain texture and I finally stumbled on the recipe that works. Best of all, the boys love it too!

It was supposed to be the usual Chocolate Almond Cake recipe that I normally follow until I realised halfway into the preparation that I didn’t have enough almond meal. Too lazy to head down to the shops to get some more, I decided to wing it. Funny how well things work out when you’re not even trying.


  • 125g dark chocolate, melted
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 100g plain flour
  • 50g self-raising flour
  • 150g icing sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 50g ground almonds
  • 60ml milk


  • Preheat oven to 180C. Prepare a round cake pan.
  • Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until the mixture has changed colour.
  • Pour into prepared pan and bake for 60 minutes or until the knife comes out clean.
