  • 40 g macadamias finely chopped
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 110 g caster sugar
  • 60 g unsalted butter
  • 100 g good quality dark chocolate
  • 40 g black sesame paste
  • 40 g roasted macadamia butter
  • 1 tbsp honey (15g)
  • 50 g plain flour sifted
  • 1 tbsp Dutch-processed cocoa sifted (10g)
  • Pinch of fine sea salt
  • For the Chocolate, macadamia and black sesame cake, preheat oven to 170°C (150°C fan-forced) and grease or line three 10cm (4”) cake pans with greaseproof paper.
  • Roast the chopped macadamias for 5-7 minutes or until fragrant. The additional macadamias and sesame seeds required for the praline can also be roasted and set aside at this stage.
  • Melt the butter and chocolate on a low heat in a medium saucepan, then stir through the black sesame paste, macadamia butter and honey. Set aside to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Whisk the eggs and sugar in stand mixer on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until pale, then gradually whisk in the melted chocolate mixture on a low speed until smooth.
  • Sift the flour, cocoa and salt together in a medium bowl then fold into the cake batter in 2-3 batches.
  • Divide the batter evenly between the cake pans, weighing pans to ensure equal volume. Bake in the lower third of preheated oven for 28-32 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out with moist crumbs.
  • Allow the cakes to cool in pans for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
