• 1 1/2 cups (200g) plain flour, sifted
  • 1/4 cup (25g) cocoa, sifted
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (75g) chopped dried apricots
  • 75g chopped dark chocolate
  • 1/2 cup (110g) caster sugar
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • Preheat oven to 160°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place the flour, cocoa, baking powder and cinnamon in a large bowl. Add the apricots, chocolate, sugar and eggs. Mix until well combined.
  • Transfer the dough to a flour-dusted surface and knead with hands until smooth. Shape into a log and place on the prepared tray. Press along the top to flatten the log slightly. Bake for 30 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly.
  • Cut the log into 1cm-thick slices, place on the baking tray and cook for another 12-15 minutes until hard. Serve as a snack or after-dinner treat.
