Chocopane

Makes 1 kg

Here's my chocolate version of a classic almond frangipane.

Ingredients
  • 250g unsalted butter, softened
  • 250g caster sugar
  • 5 eggs, beaten
  • 100g dark cocoa powder
  • 250g almond meal
Instructions

1 Combine the butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat with the paddle attachment on medium speed for 5 minutes, until very light and creamy. Add the eggs a little at a time, sprinkling in the cocoa between each addition.

2 Fold in the almond meal, and beat until smooth.
