Chocolate Cake

This recipe is one of the fantastic desserts that my friend Paulo always take to dinners at my place (of course his mother is the author :)). Thank you Paulo :)

You will need:

1) For the cake:
  • 1 cup chocolate powder
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 2 cups white flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 5 eggs
(cup = tea cup)

2) For the sauce:
  • 10 spoons of milk
  • 5 table spoons chocolate powder
  • 3 table spoons sugar
  • 2 table spoons butter
  1. Pre heat your oven 180 degrees and grease a cake form.
  2. Beat the eggs and the sugar until thick (it will look pale and moussey)
  3. Continue mixing adding in this order: the oil, the water, the chocolate and the flour (with the baking powder mixed in).
  4. Pour into the form and bake for 30-35 min (the top of the cake should be firm, you can test if its cooked with a toothpick. Just insert it into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done.)
For the sauce:
  1. Put all ingredients into a pan and mix everything (if you think the mixture looks too thick add a bit more of milk)
  2. Heat the mixture until hot
To finish: make some small holes in your cake (use a fork or a tooth pick) and cover with the sauce (this process should be done with both the cake and sauce hot).

Enjoy! (I like to eat it with a lot of whiped cream :))
