How to test a cake for doneness

  • Step 1/4

    Roughly chop chocolate. Combine flour and baking powder. Grease springform pan and dust with flour. Preheat oven to 150°C/300°F (convection).
    • 43¾ g dark chocolate
    • 18¾ g flour
    • ¼ tsp baking powder
    • butter for greasing
    • flour for dusting
    • oven
    • cutting board
    • knife
    • large mixing bowl
    • springform pan (26-cm/10-in.)

    Roughly chop chocolate. Combine flour and baking powder. Grease springform pan and dust with flour. Preheat oven to 150°C/300°F (convection).

  • Step 2/4

    • 25 g heavy cream
    • small pot
    • cooking spoon

    Bring cream to a boil, then remove pot from the stove. Add chocolate and stir well until melted. Set aside.

  • Step 3/4

    • 18¾ g butter (soft)
    • 25 g sugar
    • tsp salt
    • ¾ eggs
    • stand mixer or hand mixer with beaters

    Whisk butter, sugar, and salt until creamy. Add eggs individually and continue to whisk. Next, add the chocolate-cream and flour mixtures, and stir well to combine.

  • Step 4/4

    Wash and peel apples. Cut to personal preference—thin slices, for example. Fold into cake batter. Transfer batter to springform pan. Bake at 150°C/300°F (convection) for approx. 1 h. As baking time may vary from oven to oven, make sure you test cake for doneness. Insert wooden skewer into cake. If skewer comes out clean, cake is done. I serve it with caramel sauce and brittle.
