How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C. Grease and line a 20cm springform cake pan.
  2. Place chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water until melted, making sure the bowl does not touch the water.
  3. Stir until smooth and set aside to cool.
  4. Place butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer for about 5 minutes or until pale. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Fold in flour, almond meal, baking powder, milk and melted chocolate.
  5. Pour mixture into cake pan and bake for 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Cool slightly, then turn out onto a rack to cool completely.
  6. For chocolate cream, heat cream over low heat, add chocolate and stir until melted. Chill for about 15 minutes, until thickened but still a little soft.
  7. To serve, spread cream over cooled cake and sprinkle Flake bars over the top.
