Almond brittle method:

  • Put sugar, butter and water into a non-stick frying pan and heat gently.
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Increase the heat and boil for 4-5 minutes until its a light golden brown colour.
  • Add the nuts and stir.
  • Smooth the mixture onto greased baking paper and leave to cool.
  • Once hardened, snap it up into shards to serve.

Cake method:

  • Preheat the oven to 180C.
  • Grease a springform cake tin (23cm, loose bottom).
  • Blend the chocolate and sugar in a food processor until powder textured.
  • Add the boiling water, egg yolks, butter, coffee powder and vanilla extract and blitz until combined.
  • In a bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Gently fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites bit by bit.
  • Pour the cake mixture into the cake tin and bake for 45 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Once cooled, place on a cake stand or serving plate.
  • Melt 150g of chocolate and drizzle over the cake, allowing it to run down the sides.
  • Scatter the shards of almond brittle in the centre of the cake.
  • Serve a slice of cake with a generous scoop of LiQ Bourbon Salted Caramel ice cream. Done!
