- Using an electric mixer, mix the butter and castor sugar until smooth. If the butter is very hard, heat it for a few seconds in a microwave.
- Add the eggs one by one to the mixture, mixing all the time.
- Add the ground almonds, cocoa and flour to the mixture, again mixing all the time. Mix until it has a droopy consistency and is the same colour throughout. If it is not viscous enough to pour into a cake tin, add some milk.
