Chocolate cake

This recipe is not invented by me, but I have no clue where it originated… I’ve had it in my collection on a handwritten paper since I was around 14 or so.

Anyways, here’s the recipe:

Chocolate cake

  • 100 grams of butter
  • 2 ½ deciliters of sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3-4 tablespoons of cocoa
  • 1½ deciliter flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons of vanilla sugar

How to:

  1. Mix all dry ingredients except sugar.
  2. Melt the butter, take of from heat, stir in the sugar in the pot. sugar should sort of melt in with the butter add the eggs and the dry mix. Stir well.
  3. Put into a buttered form, if its a “spring form”, even better (the edge is removable) about 25 centimeters in diameter, preferably with a little bit higher edge then the normal pie form, but a pie form works.

Put in oven at 175 degrees Celsius for 22-25 minutes. Its supposed to be a bit sticky in the center.
Serve with whipped cream or sift icing sugar over it.
