Meghan Markle, 39, used to run a lifestyle blog before she met Prince Harry, 36, and regularly shared her favourite recipes with fans. The former Suits actress used to update her site The Tig with lifestyle tips and cooking recommendations including one for her favourite chocolate cake.

While The Tig was shut down shortly after Meghan became engaged to Harry in 2017, has managed to track down some of the recipes she posted on there including one for a mouthwatering gateau.

In an introduction to the luxurious sweet treat, Meghan wrote on The Tig: “Be it Valentine’s Day, or any other day where you want to treat yourself (or your honey) to a little…well, sugar – this chocolate cake, with its gooey center [sic] and picture-perfect presentation, is a no-brainer.

“All my baking quandaries go out the window when I roll up my sleeves to make this one.

“Serve with ice cream, fresh berries, or just perfectly on its own.”

How to make Meghan’s favourite cake

Here’s Meghan’s recipe for chocolate petit gâteux, as previously shared on the Tig.


200g semi sweetened chocolate

1/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp unsalted butter

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

2 eggs

2 egg yolk


Preheat the oven to 450F (230C).

Melt the butter and the chocolate together.

Combine the eggs, egg yolk and sugar together in a mixing bowl and beat for three minutes, until light and fluffy.

Fold the flour and chocolate.

Pour into two to three-inch cake moulds rimmed with greased parchment paper (as in the side image), or individual ramekins (as in the photo above).

Bake for six to eight minutes or until the edges are set and the middle is still soft. You want the centre to be gooey, so I would stick to about six minutes since they will continue cooking from their own heat even when you pull them from the oven.

Carefully lift cake moulds, and remove parchment liner, unless in ramekins (in which case, you’re all set!)

Sprinkle with powdered sugar or fresh berries if desired, then serve immediately with ice cream.

How will Meghan celebrate her 40th birthday?

Meghan has hired a celebrity party planner to help organise a bash for her 40th on August 4, an insider has claimed.

One source told the Mirror the Duchess has enlisted the help of Hollywood part planner Colin Cowie to organise the low-key shindig at her and Harry’s Montecito mansion.

The insider said: “Meghan wants a small gathering. About 65 people are invited, her closest friends and family.

“Colin was recommended to her by Oprah who always puts on fabulous parties.”

Meghan and Harry are likely to have been rushed off their feet following the arrival of their second child Lilibet in June.

The parents of two may have enlisted the help of an event planner as they juggle home life with Lili and Archie.
