Chocolate Lava Torte

Pesach without compromise.

That's my motto when planning meals for the Seder and beyond.

While it's all too easy to throw hands in the air, and accept Pesach dishes that aste of Pesach, it's perfectly possible to produce food so good, that you'd choose to serve it the whole year round.

This fudgy, brownie-like Chocolate Lava Torte - which unsurprisingly features in our latest recipe book - simply must be made at Pesach and always.

It uses just 3 tablespoons of ground almonds - cutting costs and calories - and can easily be stirred up in a bowl with no mixer required.

Even if you've already planned your Seder desserts, find time to include this gem. It will set the tone for the entire week and, as it keeps well, may even last the whole chag through.

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  • 5 eggs, lightly whisked with a fork
