Scrumptious Chocolate Cake
One of my favorite Chocolate Cake recipes. I came up with this back in 2006 and still make this cake every now and then. And even some Flickr friends tried it and loved it. YAY! This cake is very brownie-like but turns out way fluffier and non-fudgy.
250 g Sugar
100 g Flour
100 g Bittersweet Chocolate
200 g butter
4 Eggs (or 5 small Eggs)
3 tbsp Cocoa Powder (unsweetened)
1 teasp Baking Powder
Melt chocolate and butter in water bath. Add sugar and stir. Let the mixture cool down and beat afterwards with a mixer until it gets creamy and lighter. Add one egg at a time and mix some more before adding the next egg (for about 2 minutes after each egg). When done add the sieved flour, backing powder and cocoa powder and mix once again until everything is well blended.
Put the batter into cake pan (I always use a buttered cake pan. After buttering the cake pan I dust it with a mixture of sugar, flour and breadcrumbs. Usually I use about 1 tbsp of each but for the chocolate cake i used 1 teaspoon of flour, 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tbsp breadcrumbs.)
Bake about 40 minute at 180° C until toothpick comes out clear when inserted into the center
