400g butter, melted
400g dark chocolate, melted
8 eggs, separated
1 tsp. baking powder
2 packs of vanilla sugar
400g dark chocolate
50g butter, both melted, for covering the cake
This chocolate cake is very rich, moist and even more delicious.
1. First you melt butter and chocolate together and let it cool down a little
2.2. Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until they really stiff (I always use a pinch of salt with it).
3.3. Beat the egg yolks, sugar and vanilla sugar together until the mixture is white and creamy, then slowly add the butter-chocolate-mixture.
4.4. Sieve the flour and baking powder into the mixture and on top the egg whites and fold both in very carefully.
5.5. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put the cake mixture into a greased and floured 26 or 28 cm springform tin and bake for 1 hour 15 min. Maybe a little bit longer.
6.6. Let the cake cool down completely in the springform tin.
7.7. Melt the chocolate and butter together and cover the cake with it.
