I baked this easy-peasy (really!!) chocolate cake for a campaign I did recently for @bordeauxwijnen.
The idea was to pair some nice Bordeaux wines with food… I had absolutely NO problem with that! 😉
All you need is 150 gr of soft margarine (I use Solo Patisserie, of course), 150 gr of flour, 150 gr of sugar, 3 eggs, 150 gr of dark chocolate, a pinch of salt and 1 table spoon of baking powder.
For the decoration I used some crispy speculoos rolls (Lotus, I loooove those!), and some fresh blackberries to give it that little sour touch, which I really like.
Ok, let’s get started, what you do:
You first mix the soft margarine with the sugar until light and creamy, then you add the eggs one by one. You break up the chocolate and melt it au bain marie. Let it cool down slightly before stirring it through the mixture.
Then sift through the flour, the salt and the baking powder.
Stir it all together one last time, pour in lined baking tin and bake for about 50 minutes in a 170 degrees oven.
When it’s cooled down, I melted some extra-chocolate, poured it over and sprinkled over the crunchy speculoos rolls and fresh berries.
I drank a lovely glass of Chateau Montplaisir (Bordeaux) with it. Perfect match!
