Chocolate "Nemesis" Torte

Definitely one not for the fainthearted - calling all chocolate lovers out there....

This is probably one of the more ultimate of chocolate desserts, comprising enough dark chocolate to cause offence, and a luxurious sweetness that demands to be loved. Its a beautiful recipe, and the origins of this recipe cannot be revealed (lest i be shot down in flames from the catering community). Ill say this, it was a dessert from the secure confines of a well known French chef. And that's more than I'm willing to divulge...


1 sweet pastry case blind baked (1.5 in deep x 10 in reccommended)

405g of dark chocolate
345g of caster sugar
270g of butter
6 eggs
150ml of water


Cream eggs with 1/3 of the sugar

Boil the water add to this the remaining sugar, heat till the sugar is dissolved

Add the chocolate stir till chocolate is melted

Add butter and blend

Cool then add to the egg mix

Pour into a pastry case and bake at 140 degrees for 1 hour then turn the oven off then leave for another hour

Allow to cool, then devour.
