Chocolate cake intervention

Most of my roommates are in the exam period now, so today I decided to make a dessert to surprise them and cheer them a bit. I wasn’t really inspired about what to bake, so I went for the fan-favourite chocolate cake. Easy, quick and tasty. You want the recipe, don’t you?

You’ll need

  • 200gr of dark chocolate 
  • 125 gr of butter
  • 200 gr of sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 2  soup spoonfuls of flour

Then you

  • Melt the butter and the chocolate in the microwave 
  • Add the sugar and beat
  • Add the eggs, one by one, beating the mix after you’ve added each egg
  • Add the flour and beat the mix until you get a nice consistency 
  • Pour into a greased (with butter and flour) mould and introduce it into the oven, which should have been preheated at 180C
  • Let it bake for 20 min. 
  • Let it cool before turning out

I added some almond powder. It was discreet but you could still taste it, and it wasn’t heavy, as I feared. For the best effect, you can serve it adding some vanilla ice-cream. 

The surprise was a bit ruined because the whole place smelled baked chocolate, but the result was much appreciated. Nothing like chocolate to lift the spirit, right?
