My wife spoiled us again this weekend with a delectable chocolate cake. Who doesn’t like chocolate? I invite everybody to try this recipe and you won’t regret.
- 6 eggs
- 150 gr flour
- 180 gr sugar
- 30 g cocoa
For the filling:
- 300 gr chocolate (min 50% cocoa)
- 450 ml sweetened whipped cream
- 200 gr ground walnuts
- 50 gr butter
- 50 ml milk
- 20 ml rum extract
- 2 tbsp brandy or cognac
- 100 g sugar
- 200 ml water
- 20 ml rum extract
- 1 tbsp brandy or cognac
- 150 gr chocolate (min 50% cocoa)
- 50 g butter
- 50 ml whipped cream
2. For the filling: in the microwave, melt the chocolate with the butter and milk. Put aside to cool down and then add whipped cream. Mix gently until fully incorporated. From the composition, keep 2-3 tbsp to decorate the cake at the end. To the remaining mixture, add finely ground walnuts, rum and brandy or cognac or both???. I like that!! Keep the filling in the fridge until ready to use.
3. With a serrated knife, cut the cake in 4 pieces or each cake layer in half horizontally. The four tops have to be brushed with the sirop until moist.
5. Place one of the cake layers on your serving platter. Spread the cake layer with a layer of filling. Place another layer of cake on top of the filling and continue the same with the rest of them.
6. For the glazing: place the chopped chocolate and butter in a heat proof bowl. Put the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and melt until smooth, add cream stirring gently. Then pour the glazing over the cooled cake. Let stand until glazing has thickened. Enjoy!
