[cakesandcoffee 19] – chocolate cake

If you have the time and ingredients, here’s a quick chocolate cake recipe. 🙂 Just right for coffee. 😛

It’s a classic cake, with a cocoa sponge and a ganache cream, plus some fruit on top for the artistic impression. 😛 We had strawberries, you use what you have.

Ingredients for the sponge: 4 eggs, 4 tablespoons sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, 2-3 tablespoons cocoa, 4-6 tablespoons water, 4 tablespoons oil, a pinch of salt, baking powder.

For the sponge cake, mix the egg whites with the caster sugar, when it is melted, add the yolks, salt, baking powder (you can skip it if you want), oil, and alternatively flour + cocoa and water. A thick, flowing dough comes out and you pour it into a round cake pan, greased with fat and lined with flour or baking paper. In the oven, medium heat, about 30-45 minutes or more – try with a toothpick.

Cream: chocolate ganache, respectively melted chocolate and cream in equal amounts. 400g chocolate and 400g cream. Melt the chocolate cubes on the fire or in the microwave (see if you don’t burn it!!!) and add the cream, stirring until it cools. If more cream comes out, keep it in the fridge and use it for other cakes. 🙂

When the sponge is cold, cut it into 3 slices horizontally; divide the cream into four; assemble the cake: the first slice, a layer of cream, the second slice, the second layer of cream, slice number three and the rest of the cream with which you cover the sides. Arrange the strawberry pieces nicely on top. If you want to syrup the slices on the counter, use fruit compote juice or make syrup from water, sugar and rum.

And if you succeed, try not to eat everything in one day! :))))
