This moist chocolate sponge cake exerts strong powers over me, specially after the first slice. It is so damn good! Let the hidden powers of the Gods do not stop me from repeating. Thankfully, I don't eat this cake alone.
180g brown sugar
10 egg yolks
85g self-raising flour
15g powdered cocoa
30g powdered chocolate
1. Preheat oven to 230ºC.
2. Mix the eggs with the sugar and whisk for five minutes.
3. Whisk the egg yolks and add them to the previous mix. Use an electric mixer to keep whisking for more two to three minutes.
4. Mix the flour with the cocoa and the chocolate. Wrap the mixture above with this chocolate dough carefully.
5. Pour in a round shape, with 26 cm, lined with parchment paper and bake it in the oven for 11 minutes.
The moist chocolate sponge cake feels like it has chocolate mousse inside. Once you cut the first slice, the "mousse" flows from the inside like a river of thick yummy chocolate that leaves us with only one option: grab a spoon and use it to eat and stop only when there is no more. I dare you to try it!
Have a pleasent week!
