A cake for Sanja

Please let me introduce your new friend: the chocolate cake from heaven. It will melt in your mouth and you’ll enjoy chocolate as long as there is cake left in the mold 😉

If you try the recipe and you like it, thank Sanja. I shared the recipe because she reads the blog and I know that she loves chocolate as much as I do!

The only trick here is: you can’t eat it warm. You have to wait until it reached room temperature (or if you can’t wait that long, at least wait 1 hour). Because that’s when it reached the perfect melting point in your mouth.

Ingredients:

  • 200g dark dark chocolate (52% cocoa at least. 64% is better)
  • 120g sugar
  • 1tbsp flour
  • 100g butter
  • 5eggs (separate whites and yolks)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 180°C

  1. Slowly melt chocolate and butter in a pan
  2. Beat the egg whites until stiff
  3. Mix the egg yolks and sugar until it becomes whitish.
  4. Add the melted chocolate & butter to the egg yolks and sugar. Mix.
  5. Gently add the egg whites.
  6. Then add the flour and mix.
  7. Pour in a mold covered with cooking paper
  8. Bake for 25min NOT MORE!
  9. Let it cool for at least one hour.
  10. Enjoy 🙂 (don’t eat the whole thing in a day!)

  • Once the cake is cooled, spread some icing one the top of the cake (use lemon juice and icing sugar for the icing).
