Flourless Hazelnut Chocolate Cake with Roasted Fruits Recipe
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 23cm-square cake pan with baking paper.
Combine chocolate, butter, ⅓ cup of water and cocoa in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes or until chocolate melts and mixture is smooth. Transfer to a large bowl.
Add egg yolks, sugar, ground hazelnuts and 2 tablespoons of Frangelico to chocolate mixture. Stir to combine.
Using an electric mixer, whisk egg whites in a clean, dry bowl until firm peaks form. Add one-third to the chocolate mixture and gently fold to combine. Add remaining egg white and fold to combine. Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Set aside for 10 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.
Combine mascarpone with icing sugar and remaining Frangelico.
Meanwhile, line a baking tray with baking paper. Arrange strawberries and rhubarb on tray. Sprinkle with sugar, orange juice and orange zest. Bake for 10 minutes or until just tender. Remove from oven. Set aside to cool slightly.
Cut cake into squares and dust with cocoa powder. Serve with mascarpone and roasted strawberries and rhubarb.
