  •       90 g caster sugar
  •       170 g unsalted butter, plus a little extra, for greasing

  •       150g unsalted butter
  •       6 eggs, separated
  •       55g caster sugar

  •       Fine chocolate chips , for decoration


Prep time: 30 minutes, plus chilling time.

Cook time: 45 minutes



  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC, fan 160ºC. Grease a 20cm round springform tin and line with baking parchment.
  2. To make the base, combine the flour, sugar and butter, and make a dough by hand. Or use a food processor and whizz until it resembles breadcrumbs. Pat together to form a ball, then press the dough evenly into the bottom of the tin. Prick all over with a fork.DSC_3227DSC_3234
