Traditional cake recipe and baking instructions for moist chocolate cake recipe and best chocolate cake I know. My chocolate cake recipe comes from the Southern Palatinate region of Germany from the patisserie of a country hotel and monastery, and today I’m explaining to you in step-by-step instructions how to bake the delicious chocolate cake that also passes for brownie cake and fudge cake. The chocolate cake with dark chocolate is quite chewy inside and deliciously crunchy outside.
Instructions for preparing the chocolate cake recipe
First, dissolve the chocolate into a liquid mass. I like to use a water bath for this with a large saucepan in which I then mix all the ingredients. Once the chocolate has melted, I first add sugar and wait for the sugar to dissolve.
Then I add butter and mix it until the butter is melted. Separate the four eggs and add the four egg yolks to the mixture.
Now add sifted flour and almond semolina by the spoonful.
Beat the egg whites in a mixer until fluffy and then add the beaten egg whites by the spoonful to the mixture. When everything is mixed, you can pour the batter into any greased mold or several molds.
The cake now goes for about 25-30 minutes in the oven, which was preheated to 180 degrees Celsius.
Let the cake cool after baking, remove from the mold and sprinkle with powdered sugar. I can recommend you to put some strawberries next to the cake, because they always taste delicious with chocolate.

When there is something to celebrate, sometimes there is the cake in a beautiful wooden box as a gift. A great gesture and for me one of the most delicious cakes.

The finished chocolate cake tastes really delicious and is not too sweet and not too tart. Due to the high chocolate content, even small pieces saturate very well. For me, the best chocolate cake remains something very special and is, in addition to the taste, a great memory of the many wonderful hours in Hornbach.
