With a bit of delay, here is the first Christmas recipe for 2017. This Christmas tree chocolate cake is very easy to bake and it is made to impress.
What you need:
- 100 g caster sugar
- 50 g self raising flour
- 4 eggs
- 75 g cocoa powder
- 15 g corn flour
- almond essence
How to make it:
In a bowl whisk together the egg yolks and the sugar until you have a creamy mixture. Sift in the flour, the corn flour, the cocoa powder and incorporate well until smooth. Add the almond essence and stir once more.
Beat the egg whites with the salt until peaks form and add them to the batter with smooth movements, mixing from the center of the bowl.
Add the batter to a Christmas tree shaped mold and bake in the oven at 190C for 35 mins.
When the cake is completely cooled down use your fantasy to decorate it. In this cake I just used sugar ribbons and snowflakes and icing sugar.
