45g half spoon granulated sugar (*NOTE: If using regular sugar use 100grams)
200g tinned mandarin orange segments drained
Heat your oven to 180C
Break the chocolate up and add with butter to a microwave safe bowl and melt.
Make sure to cover the bowl or else you’ll have butter all over the microwave!
Take out stir to combine and add the brandy and let cool.
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks with the sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the ground almonds and stir to combine.
By now the chocolate and butter should be cool enough to whisky
Next beat the egg whites until they reach soft fluffy peaks.
Carefully fold in half of the egg whites into the batter trying not to release all the air from the eggs.
Fold in the second half and set aside.

Take your mandarin oranges and place them in whatever pattern you’d like. Make sure they are thoroughly drained before doing so.
