Simple chocolate cake

How to make Simple chocolate cake recipe - Preparation time: approx. 20 minutes (plus baking time)

Makes 16 slices

125 g butter
125 g dark chocolate (70 % cocoa content)
175 g sugar
pinch of salt
2 eggs
70 g flour
1 level tsp baking powder
50 g chopped walnuts

walnut halves for decoration
butter for the baking tin

Melt the butter and chocolate at a low heat and mix well. Leave to cool slightly until lukewarm. Add the sugar and the salt and whip to a creamy consistency with a hand mixer.

Pre-heat the oven to 180 °C (Gas Mark 4). Gradually stir the eggs into the butter and chocolate mixture. Mix the flour with the baking powder, sieve into the chocolate mixture and stir well before adding the walnuts.

Grease a springform (26 cm diameter) thoroughly. Turn in the cake mixture and bake for approx. 25 minutes. The cake should be still soft on the inside. Leave to cool and serve dusted with icing sugar and decorated with walnut halves.

This simple chocolate cake can be easily transformed into a small chocolate orgy. Cut the cake horizontally into two bases and fill with dark or white chocolate. Finally cover with dark chocolate coating.
