Pure Chocolate Cake


不使用可可粉, 而是让巧克力充分融化后加入来烘烤
成为较湿润的简单蛋糕。

Recipe from 西点学习大百科


Recipe for 23cm round baking pan:

70% dark chocolate 280g
Unsalted butter 200g
6 large eggs
pinch of salt
Caster sugar110g
Plain flour 100g

  3. Melted the chchocolate at a double boiler with low heat.
  4. In another bowl, beat the butter until mayonnaise consistency then add the melted chocolate. 
  5. Add the mixed egg yolk and white into the chocolate butter. Add little by little about 8 times.
  6. In another clean bowl, whisk the 4 egg whites until fluffy then add the sugar in three batches. Beat until peak stiff consistency. 
  7. Fold in 1/3 of the egg white to the chocolate batter then fold in all the shifted plain flour.
