Step 1/6

  • 200 dark chocolate
  • 250 butter
  • saucepan
  • oven

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).

Step 2/6

  • 400 sugar
  • 4 eggs
  •  tsp vanilla sugar
  • ¼ 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).

Step 3/6

Now add the butter-chocolate mixture and whisk briefly.

Step 4/6

  • 175 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).

Step 5/6

  • 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.

Step 6/6

  • strawberries for serving

If you want to add some fruit as a special treat, I would recommend fresh strawberries.
