Chocolate Easter Cake

Why shouldn’t Easter be celebrated with a special treat, just as we have plenty of treats for Christmas. Make this cake once and serve it for friends and family this Easter, and I am sure that this will become an Easter must for years to come, as it is here.

This cake is not only beautiful to look at; decorated with little chocolate eggs, but is also an equally delicious chocolatey treat to indulge, enjoy!

Chocolate Easter Cake Ingredients

  • 125g dark chocolate (min 70%)
  • 50g butter
  • 250g of sugar
  • 2 large free range/organic eggs

To make Chocolate Easter Cake

Preheat the oven to 175°C, Butter an 18cm round tin

Carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave or traditionally; by breaking up the chocolate and placing in a bowl placed into a pot of hot simmering water, let the butter melt into the chocolate – ensure that no water gets into the chocolate.

Mix the eggs well with the sugar, add the flour. Carefully add the chocolate mixture.

Pour the mixture into the prepared tin, transfer to a hot oven and leave to bake for ca. 20-25 minutes or until it fells spongy on top.

Leave to cool before removing from the tin.

Just before serving the cake:

Carefully remove the cake from the tin and place on a plate or decorative platter.

Chop the chocolate for the ganache, carefully melt the chocolate in the microwave or as above. Mix 100ml of cream into the melted chocolate.

Whip the remaining of the cream and fold into the cooled chocolate mixture (leave to cool for ca. 10 minutes)

Spread onto the chocolate cake and sprinkle with chocolate eggs

Suggestions

You can use the above recipe to make a delicious chocolate pudding, replace the chocolate eggs and scatter with raspberries or perhaps add 2 table spoons of Contreau to the chocolate ganache and the peel of an organic orange to the cake mixture for an extraordinary desert.
