My divine chocolate cake: Best recipe ever


When I was going through a full box of recipes the other day, I found my favourite recipe for a divine chocolate cake. As you probably know by now, I am a chocolate addict and I stand for it. I believe that every woman must be able to splash out every once in a while without a shred of ill-conscience :)

That is why I’m happy to share my favourite chocolate cake recipe with you… enjoy :)

chocolate cake

Divine chocolate cake

  • 200 g butter
  • 300 ml of sugar
  • 100 ml of cocoa
  • 2 teaspoons of vanilla sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 300 ml flour

1. Set the oven to 175 degrees Celcius. Melt the butter in a saucepan.

2. Lift from the heat and stir in sugar, cocoa and vanilla.

Stir in the eggs one egg at a time and finally add the flour.

NOTE: If you are allergic to gluten, replace the flour with almond flour, which is the best replacement in my opinion.

3. Pour cake mix into a greased and floured mould about 24 cm in diameter.

4. Bake in the middle of the oven for 20-25 minutes (I usually do 20). The cake should be a little sticky in the middle and not dry.

5. Allow to cool. Sprinkle over a little icing sugar if necessary and add a few raspberries.




Enjoy this divine chocolate creation with a dollop of whipped cream (without anxiety :)

MMM just the thought takes me up to the 8th chocolate heaven!

    Ha ha, nä jag får väl erkänna att jag inte är en chokladoman, ovanligt nog. Jag tycker mer om lakrits :) Fast det är klart att det slinker ner en och annan kladdkaka, det ska erkännas, det dumma är att jag är rätt kass på att göra dem… Så jag nöjder mig med att njuta av din fina bild :)

    Chocolate and raspberries are such a wonderful combination.

    Ditt recept lät rent fabulous!

    Måste dock påpeka att 1 cup ( ditt recept på engelska ) inte är 1 dl.
    Amerikans “cup” är 2,4 dl
    Engelsk “cup” är 2,8 dl.

    För övrigt, kanon!
