Chocolate Cake

Several days ago I gave you a recipe for a Birthday cake which I called Black Temptation. Today I am going to give you a similar recipe with similar ingredients but have made a few changes and the taste is completely different.


  • You need a sponge cake (see recipe).   Add 1 tbsp lemon zest.
  • Pastry cream: Half the recipe given and In the cream add 175 grams dark chocolate.  When the cream sets add the chocolate and mix.  Do not add the butter.
  • Whipping cream: 2 doses of  Whipping Cream .  You can add 2 tbsp cocoa or 175 grams melted chocolate in it, which however you will have to mix continuously until it cools, before mixing it with the whipped cream.  I added cocoa.
  • Decorate with 1/2 cup blanched and roasted almonds. After blanching, split in two and roast in oven until slightly golden, while you are preheating oven to bake the sponge cake.

I made this cake for my husband on his name day.  The photo does not do it any justce.  It really tasted better than it looks.
