My mum bought this amazingly shaped cake mould and I couldn’t resist to use it straight away. Because I am very busy with revision I chose a really easy and quick recipe with ingredients we had in the house:
For the dough: 250g butter or margarine 225g caster sugar 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar a pinch of salt 2 drops of lemon flavouring 4 eggs 250g plain flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 100g chocolate flakes For the covering: 150g chocolate (milk or dark) 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or: chocolate cake covering
Preheat the oven for 180°C, grease and flour the cake mould.
Whisk the soft butter/margarine and slowly add sugar, vanilla sugar, salt and lemon flavouring.
Whisk in each egg separately for about half a minute before adding the next one. Mix flour and baking powder in a bowl and add in two steps under constant whisking of the dough. Add the chocolate flakes.
Fill the dough into the cake mould and bake for 30-50 minutes depending on the form of the mould. The cake is ready when no dough sticks to a metal stick after testing the m
iddle of the cake.
Let the cake cool down for a couple of minutes before turning out the cake on a baking grid. Let it cool down completely before covering it with chocolate.
Melt the chocolate and brush on the cake.
Now enjoy a slice of this beautifully shaped and coloured cake 🙂
