Chocolate Lover's Cake

Thursday, November 14, 2013

This cake is really a chocolate lover's dream. It's delicious, rich, chocolate-y and perfect! It has such a rich chocolate flavor but it's not too sweet which for me it's the perfect combination. Take a look:


Recipe by Baking Made Simple Cookbook

Ingredients:
Cake
1 1/2 sticks butter
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
4 eggs, separated
Pinch salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup all-purpose flour

Glaze
5 tablespoons butter
1 2/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9-inch round cake pan, line with parchment or waxed paper. In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally; set aside to cool slightly. In a medium bowl, with electric mixer, beat egg whites with salt until stiff peaks form. In another medium bowl, with electric mixer, beat eggs yolks and sugar until light and ribbony, about 2 minutes. While beating, slowly add chocolate mixture until blended. Beat in flour. With spatula, fold in egg whites just until blended. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove cake to wire rack and run knife around rim to loosen cake from sides; cool 15 minutes. Remove cake from pan and cool completely. For glaze, in small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat, stirring occasionally. Spread warm glaze over cake. Decorate with sprinkles or fresh raspberries. Serve and enjoy!
