Ingredients 100 g margarine
100 g pastry flour
60 g sugar
50 g chocolate powder
50 g confectioner’s sugar
5 eggs
5 g baking powder
For the filling:
100 g chocolate powder
30 g confectioner’s sugar
4 dl whipping cream
1 package vanilla sugar
For the icing:
60 g margarine
60 g chocolate
Cream sugar and margarine; gradually add egg yolks and chocolate powder. Cream until frothy. Whisk egg whites and sugar into a foam and carefully stir it, with flour, into the froth. Grease and flour a cake pan, pour in the batter and bake at a low temperature. Let the cake cool down.
While the cake cools, cook the whipping cream, confectioner’s sugar, vanilla sugar and chocolate powder, stirring continuously until it thickens. Let it cool down and whisk into a foam. Spread the filling on the cool cake.
Melt chocolate and margarine, stir, and when the icing starts to thicken, pour it over the cake.
