Comfort food may be the one thing everyone can agree on, hence, I made this very rich chocolate cake. I haven’t made a cake in a while and I thought that this would be the perfect one to try. I’ve posted a few chocolate cakes in the past, but this one is definitely the sweetest and richest one by far (so rich that a glass of water to accompany it is a good idea). I hope you like this recipe and try it when you need something sweet and delicious in your life.
200g dark chocolate (ideally 70% cocoa)
300g caster sugar/ Xylitol (as a substitute for less sugar)
250g unsalted butter
1¼ cups milk
¼ cup oil
½ cup/ 45g Nomu hot chocolate
1 tsp baking powder
265g plain flour
Preheat oven to 160C (fan forced / convection) / 180C/350F (no fan) (Note 3).
Butter a round spring form tin.
Combine sugar, butter, half the milk and chocolate in a pan over medium heat.
Stir until the butter and chocolate has melted and sugar is dissolved- don’t let it boil.
Pour the chocolate mixture into a bowl. Whisk in oil and remaining milk.
Lastly, whisk in the eggs.
Sift cocoa, baking powder, flour and coffee directly into the bowl. Whisk until smooth.
Pour into the tin and let it bake for about 1 hour and 15min. Check to see if the cake is done by inserting a skewer in it to see if it’s ready.
1 cup heavy whipping cream
250g dark chocolate
Break the chocolate into small pieces.
Pour the cream into a pan and let it simmer.
Combine the cream and the chocolate into a blender to get it all mixed well with no lumps. Allow to cool and then spread around the cake generously.
