[cakesandcoffee 2] – chocolate and amaretto cake

Well, I am pretty sure you’ll like the next cake very, very much !!! 😛 It is fluffy and it melts in your mouth, it is sweet and it is perfect for a cup of black coffee. 🙂

Ingredients: 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 250g soft butter, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup brown sugar, 4 large eggs at room temperature, 1 cup milk, 170g melted bitter chocolate, 1 vanilla sugar, 3 teaspoons almond essence, 4 tablespoons amaretto liqueur.

Logically, I changed the recipe and it didn’t came out a disaster. 🙂 I halved the amount of sugar and even so, it turned out super sweet. And because I didn’t have any almond essence, I just put amaretto.

How to make it: first melt the chocolate, in a bain-marie or in the microwave (be careful not to burn it: D). If you prefer the first option, put a pot of water to boil on the stove and in it you will put a second pot (eg a porcelain cup), in which there are broken chocolate pieces; turn on the heat slowly and mix lightly in the chocolate until it all melts. Remove from the heat and wait to cool for about 10 minutes.

In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar + vanilla sugar, then add the eggs one at a time, the liquid chocolate, and alternately the milk and flour with the baking powder. At the end the liqueur.

Bake in a large cake pan, on baking paper or lined with grease and flour. I had about three smaller trays. Bake at the medium temperature for about 45 minutes.

And disaster as you are, did you manage not to burn them? 😛 Only a bit, on the bottom. :))))) But I cut them nicely after they cooled down, as if nothing had happened. 😀

Well, you will have to wait for it to cool down completely, otherwise it will disintegrate and you will eat the cake with the teaspoon. :))))

The recipe is inspired by Magnolia Bakery, as well as the previous one in this series.
