Method

1 Preheat the oven to 150 °C. Grease a 20 cm loose-bottom cake tin and dust with flour.

2 Crust Mix the biscuit crumbs, sugar and margarine and press into the base and a little
way up the sides of the cake tin.

3 Filling Beat the eggs and sweetener. Add the melted chocolate and mix well.

4 Mix in the cottage cheese and yoghurt. Sift the cocoa powder and flour over the mixture
and fold in.

5 Spoon into the tin and bake for 2 hours 15 minutes or until the filling is set but still a bit
wobbly in the middle.

6 Leave to cool. Dust with sifted cocoa powder and decorate with strawberries (if using).

For this recipe, it’s best to use water biscuits or Provitas and dark chocolate instead of bran
biscuits and diabetic chocolate.
