  1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.

  3. In saucepan, cook and stir chocolate and whipping cream over low heat until chocolate is melted. Transfer to a large bowl and set aside.
  4. In a separate large bowl combine eggs, 150g sugar and flour. Beat for ten minutes, until fluffy and lemon coloured. Fold 1/4 of egg mixture into chocolate mixture to lighten; then fold chocolate mixture back into egg mixture. Pour over biscuit base.
