In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and sugar for 3 minutes, slowly add the chocolate mixture, then sift in the flour, baking powder, cocoa and salt. Fold to combine.

Tip of the day

Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
