1/2 x 284 ml carton soured cream
2 tbsp brandy (optional)
125 g raspberries
1/2 x 284 ml carton soured cream
1 tbsp icing sugar (confectioners sugar)

1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F) gas mark 5.

2. Grease and flour a 20 cm round loose bottomed flan tin.

3. Melt the chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of hot water (or gently in the microwave), once melted remove from the heat.

4. Place the eggs and the sugar in a bowl, stand the bowl over a saucepan of hot water and using an electric mixer, whisk until the mixture is light and fluffy and doubled in volume. It should leave a ribbon like trail when the whisk is lifted.
