The simplest cake in the world, yet you cannot pass a Shabbat without it, because what can I say - simplicity wins in Shabbat. From all the cakes I’ve prepared with Shoshi for the photoshoot, this one was gone the quickest. You can make it dairy or Parve, and it’s just great. I make the entire cake in the same pot I melt my chocolate in, so there’s almost no dishes to wash and it’s done in 5 minutes.
Cooking time: 25-30 minutes
Yield: 10-12 servings
- 2 packs Dark chocolate, broken into cubes
- 100g Butter OR ½ cup Oil
- 1 cup Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- ½ cup Water/Milk
- 1¼ cup Flour (whole wheat, spelt or white)
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 cup Dark chocolate chips/Crushed nuts (optional)
For the glaze:
- 100g Dark chocolate, chopped or broken into cubes
- 1 tbsp honey
- 4 tbsp Milk/Coconut milk
- Shredded cocoa (to garnish)
Select the CAKE setting on the EasyCook pot, and set it to 30 minutes. Add the chocolate and the oil and stir until the chocolate melts. Add flour and sugar and stir. Add everything but the eggs and stir. Add the eggs in one after another, close the lid and let the cake bake until the program ends.
By the way, the EasyCook has a heat preservation function that starts automatically after the cooking process is over. To finish and turn off the function, press and hold the "Warm/Cancel" button. The cooker will display all the programs, and the heating process will be over.
