Chocolate Magic Cake

Here we go, by popular demand, I present to you the super recipe for the chocolate magic cake, or the intelligent cake - you name it! I've been planning and testing for a long time and, eventually, I stuck with this version, which I warmly recommend. 

The thickness of the magic chocolate cake will vary depending on the size of the cooking tray you are using, mine is 25x25cm. And maybe you might want to avoid using a pan with removable sides, that's what I did and it was hard to take out of the oven. 

One more thing. Notice that I use the mixer only for beating the egg whites, for everything else I use a classic whisk, as the batter is rather liquid and and I don't want you to blame it on me for the splashing all over the kitchen!

Ingredients

Eggs
4 pcs
Sugar
150 g
Butter
125 g
melted and cooled butter
White flour
115 g
Cacao powder
40 g
Milk
500 ml
Vanilla Extract
1 tsp
or any other favourite flavours

Step by step

1

Separate the eggs in 2 different bowls. 

2

With a mixer, beat the egg whites to stiff peaks. 

3

Add the sugar and the vanilla extract to the yolks and stir well using a whisk. 

4

Keep mixing while you pour in the melted butter little by little. 

 

5

Incorporate the flour and the cocoa powder and keep whipping. 

 

6

Notice now that the batter is a bit more dense and that's how it's supposed to be. 

7

Incorporate the milk in 3-4 rounds and keep whisking well each time, so that there won't be lumps. 

8

Now the batter will become runny and I do not recommend using the mixer because it splashes a lot.

A simple whisk will do the job, safe and clean :) 

9

Now transfer the stiff egg whites and blend it in the batter. 

It will be hard with the spoon, so I suggest using the whisk. 

10

This is what the batter should look like in the end. 

11

Tip it in a 25x25cm cake pan, already lined with parchment paper or greased with butter. 

Distribute the batter evenly in the pan and smooth over the surface. 

12

Bake it for 1 hour in the pre-heated oven to 160 degrees C. 

Finally, press with your fingers the middle part of the cake and, if it's not wobbling, you can take it out of the oven.

13

Let the cake completely cool, this will make it easier to cut. 

14

A closer look at the inside, the pieces of cake are firm and they can be grabbed easily - a great thing for the kids. 

15

As you can see, the cake is not difficult to make and it's really delicious. It's already among our favourites, but especially among my favourites - it's very quick and everybody finds it lovely :) 

Enjoy!
