Slightly Sweetened Chocolate Gateau

Slightly Sweetened Chocolate Gateau

Keep down the cost by not using milk or heavy cream.

Ingredients: 15 cm round cake pan

Chocotale bar (Ghana black)
100 g
Butter of margarine for making sweets
65 g
Cocoa ( pure or milk)
25 g
White flour
1 teaspoon
Egg yolk
Egg white
20 g
Powdered sugar for topping
as needed


1. Sift cocoa and white flour together.
2. Spread butter on the cake pan and line the cake pan with paper.
3. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. (If in a stainless bowl, heat on a induction stovetop on 1 level.)
4. When the chocolate has melted, take off the hot water. Add butter and mix while the chocolate is still warm. Add cocoa and white flour from Step 1 and mix.
5. Add half the amount of sugar to the egg white and whip up a meringue. ( Make a stiff one )
6. Put an egg yolk in another bowl and add the rest of sugar. Use the hand mixer you used at Step 5 and cream until the egg yolk becomes white.
7. Preheat the oven (160℃ ).
8. Add the egg yolk mixture from Step 6 to Step 4 and mix.
9. Add the batter from Step 8 to 1/3 of the meringue from Step 5 and mix well. Add the rest of the meringue and mix gently in a cut-and-fold motion.
10. Pour the batter from Step 9 into the cake pan and put it in the preheated oven. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes.
11. It expands! But will soon shrink back down again.
12. I baked this for the "Golden Week" holidays. The difference between the previously posted picture is that I used different cocoa. This time was delicious, too.
13. Take it out of the cake pan when it is cool and sprinkle some powdered sugar, and you're done!
14. Here's another one I baked.
15. I decided to indulge a bit after putting on my morning make-up.
