Delicious cake! Really tasty! For chocolate lovers. Fantastic texture! This is the perfect cake when we have many people at home, like the famous 3 chocolates cake or the classic chocolate cake (we will soon publish both of them).
This recipe is from the book “My way of cooking” by Thermomix. Everybody will love this cake, specially the children! Although it might seem a very long recipe, I can assure you it is really easy to prepare.
With these amounts you will have a 12 pieces cake. It will also give you a lot of energy, so maybe you might want to make some sport after eating it 😛
