Ingredients
  

Chocolate Cake

  • 1 cup Chocolate
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 2 Egg Yolks
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt

Frosting

  • 120 gr Cream Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Butter
  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar

Instructions
 

Preparing the Chocolate Batter

  • Today, I will show you a new/faster way on how to do it. Put all the chocolate and butter in a pan in low heat. start stirring the mixture as soon as you realize that it is melting. On another bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar for around 10 minutes. When the chocolate and butter are fully blended together, add them to the eggs and sugar mixture.
  • Add flour and salt and mix it well. when the mixture cools down a little bit, add the baking powder and the vanilla extract. Put it in a baking pan and bake it for 20 minutes at 180C(350F). Make sure to check it very Often. Depending on the oven, sometime the batter might cook faster. It only needs to pass 1 minute to burn the whole thing.

Preparing Frosting

  • To do the frosting, this time we will use cream cheese. Add the cream cheese in a bowl and mix it very well with the butter until everything is homogeneous. If you are mixing it by hand, it will take around 10-15 minutes. Add the powdered sugar. Make sure to sift it if the powdered sugar has a lot of clumps. When the mixture is ready, put it in a Frosting bag and cool it down for 20-30 minutes.

Finishing Chocolate Cake

  • For the picture below, I have used a circular shape to cut the chocolate batter. Start decorating the cake with the frosting bag as you may please.
