Chocolate cake for my LJ friends

on February 10, 2006

From Norts:

If there is someone on your Friends List who makes your world a better place just because that person exists and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

Several in fact.

Froglet was a little horror yesterday but at least I’ve slept enough to deal with him now. And it’s nearly the weekend and that means it’s nearly The Engineer’s holiday. 🙂

I’m thankful that Christianity is about freedom, not rules
I’m thankful for internet access
And I’m thankful for the friends who gave us this chocolate cake recipe:

Neve Cake
4 eggs
125 g butter/marge (just over 1/2 cup)
200 g sugar (2 cups)
3 tblsp plain flour
200 g black chocolate
a little milk.

Line a 9 inch round tin with greaseproof paper.
Separate eggs and beat eggwhite until it makes soft peaks.
Heat oven to 100 C.
Melt chocolate together with milk, then add all ingredients including egg yolks and mix well.
Fold in egg whites carefully.
Pour into tin. Put in oven and turn oven up to 180 C.
Bake for one hour approx.

Instructions are for a normal oven i.e. not fan-assisted. I make it 160 C for 45-50 minutes with fan assisted. Cake is crispy almost like meringue on outside and top and squidgy inside (degree of squidginess seems to vary from one time to the next). I’ve made this cake several times over the last month even though I have to beat the whites by hand which I dislike doing – that’s how good it is!

Hope someone enjoys it.
