Nutrition per serving
- 22¼ g dark chocolate
- 27¾ g butter
Pre-heat the oven to 175°C/350°F (convection). Melt chocolate and butter in a pan set over low heat. Stir occasionally to avoid burning. As the cake will be very sweet due to the large amount of sugar, I suggest you use very dark chocolate (with a high cocoa content).
- 44½ g sugar
- ½ eggs
- ⅛ tsp vanilla sugar
- ⅛ tsp salt
- large bowl
- hand mixer with beaters
In the meantime, whisk sugar, eggs, vanilla sugar, and salt in a bowl. Only whisk until everything is just combined and small bubbles appear (which you can only see when you stop whisking).
Now add the butter-chocolate mixture and whisk briefly.
- 19½ g flour
- butter for greasing
- baking sheet
Finally, add flour and whisk again until batter is homogenous. Pour batter onto a greased baking sheet and distribute evenly. Now bake for approx. 15 min. at 175°C/350°F (convection).
- sprinkles for decorating
As soon as you remove the cake from the oven, decorate with sprinkles (otherwise they will not stick at all), and also slice when warm.
- strawberries for serving
If you want to add some fruit as a special treat, I would recommend fresh strawberries.
