rich dark chocolate cake + winner

The last days were still rainy – with weather like that I very often feel like baking eating cake.

A rich, infinitely chocolatey chocolate cake topped with fresh summer berries is a great idea for rainy July days.
Not to mention rainy August to June days.

I do have to seriously warn all of you who love cake batter, though:
This cake’s batter tastes so delicious that you will look in vain for the third little tin you poured it into.
It will reappear in the kitchen a good bit later.

(Noelle, of course, has no idea what I’m talking about.)

Afterwards you can pour molten chocolate over the cake and eat it instantly and still warm, or – if you like it crunchy – decorated with fresh berries after some time, best to place it in the fridge for half an hour. 
Whichever it is: wonderful!

Most chocolatey chocolate cake in the world.

10 ½ oz dark chocolate (70% or 80%)

a generous ¾ cup sugar
5 eggs
4 oz butter
a scant ½ cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
cocoa powder and butter for the mold


additional chocolate
fresh summer berries (optional)

1. First melt the chocolate together with the butter in the microwave or a double boiler.

Let cool a bit.

2. Whisk eggs and sugar until frothy, then add the chocolate/butter mixture.

3. Lastly mix flour and baking powder and add to the mixture.

4. Grease the tin with butter and sprinkle with cocoa powder.

5. Bake at 320F for about 40 minutes.

Baking time varies a lot depending on the size of the baking tin, so always check with a wooden skewer.

Thanks a lot for participating, my lovelies: : 
The give-away that got cancelled due to the rain on the week-end will be happening within the next few days – and it will really whet your appetite for summer and the beach!

I brought the springform tin from Rome, but similar ones can be found here:

Although Baden-Württemberg’s (region in Southern Germany) summer holidays haven’t started yet, not much is happening in class anymore, often there are field trips, or the children come home early.

While typing this post, Ben sits beside me and asks me a question a minute:

"Do you think it would be cool, if there was a city where only monsters live?”

"What would you think, if stamps had a taste? E.g. worm-eaten strawberries or puddle water?” 

"Don’t you think it’s funny that it is mainly the Duck family living in Duckburg?"

"Where would you travel to, if you had infinite amounts of money?”

Now think about it.
(After all, I can’t look after everything myself.)
