For the chocolate cake:

Ingredients

3
whole eggs
100
g
brown sugar
40
ml
olive oil
4
tablespoon
water
90
g
oat flour
4
tablespoon
cocoa powder
3
tablespoon
cornstarch
1/2
teaspoon
salt

For the mango chilli filling:

Ingredients

1-2
ripe mangoes, peeled and pureed
2
medium hot red chillies, seeded and finely diced into cubes, or less according to taste

For the chocolate glaze:

Ingredients

25
g
butter
75
g
dark chocolate, at least 50% cocoa, chopped
1
tablespoon
whipping cream
1
firm mango, peeled, stone removed and thinly sliced, for garnish
  • Preheat the oven to 180 °C
  • Line a round baking tin 18-22 cm in diameter with baking paper.
  • Separate the egg white and yolks.
  • In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks, sugar, oil and water with a hand mixer until the mixture becomes pale and doubles in volume. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks - not too stiff.
  • Sift the oat flour, cocoa, cornstarch and salt over the bowl with the egg yolks and sugar and mix gently with a spatula or spoon, working from the bottom up.
  • Add the beaten egg whites and mix with gentle circular movements. Transfer to the baking tin and bake for 25 to 30 minutes - until a toothpick comes out clean and dry when inserted.
  • Leave to cool, then remove from the tin and cut in half through the middle so you have a top and bottom.
  • Spread the pureed mangoes, sprinkle half of the chopped chilli on top and place the second half of the cake on top. Refrigerate.
  • For the glaze, melt the butter and chopped chocolate in a bowl over simmering water.
  • Remove from the heat and add the whipped cream, mix well and pour the topping over the cake. Spread with a spatula if necessary.
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, garnish with sliced mango and the remaining chili before serving.
