- butter for greasing
- sugar for coating
Butter baking tins and dust with sugar. Make sure that it is evenly spread on the inside of the tins. Tap out excess sugar.
- 300 g couverture chocolate
- 300 g butter
- small saucepan
- cutting board
Preheat oven to 200°C/400°F. Roughly chop couverture chocolate. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the chopped chocolate and melt together.
- 150 g sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 eggs
- 5 egg yolks
Beat sugar, eggs, egg yolks, and salt in a large bowl with a mixer or whisk.
Next, add the melted chocolate to the egg mixture and stir together until a smooth batter forms.
Add flour and stir in as well.
Now, divide the batter evenly among the buttered baking tins (approx. 4 cm high). Next, place the filled tins in the freezer for approx. 5 - 7 min.
- confectioner's sugar to garnish
- whipped cream to serve
Bake cakes in a preheated oven at 200°C/400°F for approx. 8 - 10 min. Let stand for approx. 5 - 7 min. Carefully turn out the cakes, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar, and serve immediately. Whipped cream or ice cream go wonderfully with this treat.
