Ever had one of those days where you feel like Ratatouille and decide to do an experimental recipe of your own?
My craving for Dark Chocolate was due to the immense sweetness of the chocolates I had eaten for the past few days, I needed a very deliciously, dark, chunky chocolate cake.
And this is what happens when you have complete faith in your Ratatouille instinct.
Perfect with a mug of cold milk.
Here is the recipe:
- 10 tbsp flour
- 3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup expresso
- 1 egg
- 100 grams dark chocolate
- pinch of salt
- pinch of baking powder
- 2 tbs butter
- how many ever dark chocolate chips you like.
- a few cubes of dark chocolate
Preheat the oven to 180 degreees.
The method is very simple, melt the butter, expresso and dark chocolate in a pan, once completely melted and combined, set aside to cool. In another bowl, add all your dry ingredients; flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Whisk in the egg in dark chocolate, expresso and butter mixture. Pour the mixture into the dry ingredients, mix with a spoon, fold in the chocolate chips and cubes of dark chocolate, and spread in a round tin. Keep it in the oven for about 15 minutes, check with a skewer or a knife if the cake is baked.
Leave the cake for about 10 minutes to cool, then cut a large slice, the cake will crumble apart in chunks, serve with a mug of cold milk.
