Serves: 10
  • 25g black sesame seeds
  • 100g sugar
  • 50g cocoa powder
  • ⅓ c water
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 125g almond meal
  • ½ tsp vanilla paste
  • ¼ c neutral or slightly nutty oil (I used macadamia)
  • 3 eggs
How to make it
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180C and line and grease a 22cm round tin (I used a springform tin, but that's not strictly necessary).
  2. Whizz the black sesame seeds and sugar together in a food processor until the seeds are the same size as the sugar granules and you have a greyish, sandy mixture.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, water, tahini, almond meal, vanilla paste and oil and whizz again until the ingredients are well combined.
  4. Separate the eggs, placing the yolks in the food processor and the whites in a clean, dry and grease-free bowl.
  5. Whizz the yolks together with the rest of the ingredients.
  6. Beat the egg whites until they reach stiff peaks.
  7. Fold the chocolate sesame mixture and the egg whites together until they are well combined and then pour the cake mix into the prepared tin.
  8. Bake for 45 minutes. The cake will still look quite squishy and damp at this point, but it's ok. Let the cake cool for half an hour before removing it from the tin and for a further half hour before slicing.
