This is a very easy and pretty fast cake that I make at my restaurant and I serve it topped with chocolate sauce, strawberries and caster sugar……delicious…… Enjoy!

butter  250 gr                               cocoa powder 20 gr
flour    250 gr                                dark chocolate 150 gr
sugar  250 gr                                 cinnamon 1 tps
eggs 4 medium                             baking powder  1 sachet
red wine 150 ml (or gr)

  1. I divide the egg yolks from the whites.
  2. I then cut the butter into cubes and, with the help of  an electric whisk I mix it together with the sugar while adding the egg yolks one at a time.
  3. I keep mixing while adding the  cinnamon and the cocoa powder.
  4. Now I pour in the wine, I melt the chocolate in the microwave and I pour that in too.
  5. I mix the baking powder with the flour and I add it (little by little) to the mixture. I mix all it over again.
  6. In a different container I whisk the egg whites until stiff and I gently add them to the mixture stirring from the bottom to the top.
  7. I finally grease a baking tin of ca 28 cm, I pour the mixture into it, and I put the tin in the hot oven.
  8. I let it cook for ca 1hr at 180 degrees. But do check after an hour as, depending on the ovens, it might need more time to cook ( at the very most 1.5hr)
