Tools

  • The parchment paper
  • The bowl
  • a spatula
  • The spring-form cake tin
  • The skewer

Instructions:

1. You first have to pre-heat the oven to 170C/350F. Then take the parchment paper and use to cover the base of the springform tin.

2. Then put the flour, baking soda, sugar, cocoa powder into the bowl.

3. Whip the mixture well and create a well or gap at the center where you can add the milk, oil, eggs, and butter before proceeding to whisk them with a spatula and ensure the whole mixture becomes smooth.

4. Pour the mixture into the spring-form tin and put it into the oven to bake. Allow this mixture to bake in the oven for a minimum time of 1 hour and 15 minutes. You can test the dough using a skewer which is done by inserting it into the middle of the dough and pulling it out of the mixture. The mixture is considered to be ready the moment the skewer comes out clean. At this point, the top of the cake tends to crack, but that should be of no worry.

5. Once baked, the cake can now be removed from the oven and left out to cool.

Ganache:

1. The first step into preparing the chocolate sauce commences by placing the chocolate into a bowl.

2. Heat up the cooker to medium temperature and heat the cream but always be careful that it does not boil. Pour this cream onto the top of the chocolate in the bowl. You should vibrate the bowl until all the chocolate disappears under the cream. Using a lid, cover the container and set aside for 5-7minutes.

3. Stir the mixture for some minutes until it becomes silky. After this, place the pan into the freezer and let it stay until it becomes peanut butter smooth meaning it should allow a quick spread of butter.

4. Using a teaspoon, spread the ganache on every side of the cake and one should end up with smooth and textured surfaces.
