I hope you are all well!
We just came back from a wonderful week in Herblay where we were able to enjoy Jan and Nigel’s company (it was awesome) as well as some delicious home-cooked meals, interesting TV shows, wonderful discussions and a little bit of French wine 😉 We had a great time and we miss you already. So does the little croqueta!
So this week I have decided to share with you a great recipe for a simple chocolate cake. But this one is special: No butter and hardly any sugar, which makes this recipe one of my favorite because I can eat a delicious chocolate treat without feeling too guilty! I think it is also great for when you have kids over and want to give them something that is not too sweet.
We made this awesome cake for Norah’s 3-month birthday. I can’t believe it was almost 3 months ago. Time flies…
Needless to say mommy and daddy really enjoyed the cake 🙂
Ingredients for 8 people:
200 gr Chocolate
60 cl powdered milk (i used half a cup of regular milk)
100 gr flour
60 gr sugar
1 bag of vanilla sugar
3 tablespoons water
Pre-heat the oven at 150 degrees
In a bowl, mix the sugar, flour and milk.
Melt the chocolate with the water.
Separate egg white from yolk, and beat the egg white until stiff.
Add the ingredients of the bowl to the chocolate, and then slowly incorporate the egg white. Put everything in a mold and in the oven for 45 minutes (I cooked it less / depends on how you like your cake)
Et voila! Bon appetit!
