523/1038 - Date and chocolate cake

To finish off the world's most relaxed dinner party, this cake was not only ridiculously easy to make, but also a joy to eat.

Although a very simple recipe to execute, I must confess to a lapse in concentration which almost saw our dessert relegated to the scrapheap. 

Whisk egg whites with sugar - check
Add chocolates and dates - check
Bake and then leave to cool in the oven - check
Turn oven back on with the cake still inside - whoops...

Luckily I opened the oven within a couple of minutes of turning it on and rescued my already reheating cake. Crisis averted! 

The resulting cake/meringue was delightfully chewy and lovely served with cream and fresh strawberries. 

Definitely a go to recipe for a time poor host x
