My honey’s birthday calls for a classic French chocolate cake tonight.  And when you don’t have much time to bake it after a long day’s work, here is an easy recipe.

My cupboard ingredients

– 200g. dark chocolate
– 4 eggs
– 125g. of butter
– 200g. of sugar
– 100g. of flour
– 1 pack of yeast

How to:

Pre-heat your oven at 180°C

Melt your chocolate on the stove or in a microwave (add 2-3 spoons of water if you melt it in the microwave).

Add the butter.

In a large bowl, mix the eggs and the sugar.  Then the yeast and the flour.

Pour the melted chocolate, then mix well until well balanced.

Pour in a cake dish that has been buttered and floured.

Cook for about 25 minutes (adapt your cooking time to how runny you wish the cake to end up).

Here is what it should look like:









Bon appétit!
