2 tbsp dark rum

Preparation:

Break up the chocolate and gently melt it in a bowl over a pan containing a little simmering water. Allow the chocolate to cool to room temperature.

Select a loose-bottom cake tin 20 cm across and 5 cm deep. Whiz the golden syrup cake to crumbs in a food processor, then scatter half of these over the base of the cake tin and gently press down.

Whisk the eggs and sugar in a large bowl for a couple of minutes until pale and doubled in volume using an electric whisk. Using clean beaters, whisk the cream in a medium bowl until it forms soft fluffy peaks.

Fold the egg and sugar mixture into the chocolate, and then the cream in two goes, and stir in the rum. Smooth this over the cake crumbs, scatter over the remaining crumbs and gently press down. Scatter some chocolate shavings around the edge if wished, cover and chill for half a day or overnight until set. Run a knife around the cake and remove the collar. Slice the cake to serve.
