How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Grease sides and line the bottom with parchment paper of an 8-inch round springform cake pan
  • Melt the white chocolate in a heatproof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water, stirring constantly
  • Using a hand-held electric whisk, beat the eggs and sugar together in a large bowl until thick and pale-the mixture should leave a "trail" when the whisk is lifted (or use a hand whisk but you need MUSCLE for that!)
  • Sift the flour and gently fold into the eggs with a metal spoon or palette knife.
  • Add the melted chocolate.
  • Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake in oven for 25 minutes, or until springy to the touch
  • Let cool slightly in the pan, then transfer to a cooling rack and let cool completely
  • Return the cooled cake to the pan (for pouring topping over)
  • To make the topping, put the cream in a pan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly
  • Let cool slightly, then add the white chocolate and stir until melted and combined
  • Remove from the heat and set aside until almost cool, stirring, then mix in the mascarpone cheese until smooth
  • Pour on top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides into the pan
  • Let chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours
  • Remove springform sides and slide cake onto serving plate
  • To Decorate:
  • Pick up the milk chocolate curls carefully and arrange on the top of the dessert
  • Dust lightly with unsweetened cocoa using a small wire sifter

    I have tried this several times with springform tins and others and my sponge floats to the top every time. What am I doing wrong?!
