Long before I started on my GF/DF path, this was the chocolate cake my family used to enjoy on special occasions. I still make it occasionally.
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup (2 1/2 dl) granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 t vanilla sugar or 1 t vanilla extract
- 1 pinch of salt
- 4 T cocoa
- 2/3 cup (1 1/2 dl) all purpose flour
- 100 g butter melted
Mix eggs and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the dry ingredients, and last the melted butter.
Line the bottom of a spring form (9″/23 cm in diameter) with parchment paper. Pour in the mix and bake for 25-30 minutes in 350 F/175 C. The cake should be very soft in the middle.
Serve with cream (or ice cream) and berries. Freezes well!
