Some times when I was a like 12-13 my friend an I would make these and bring them to school (oh memories). Everyone loved them because let's face it, who doesn't love chocolate cake?!
So if I ever had to host a kids birthday party this is probably something I would make.
It is super-super-simple, really delicious and you can serve it on a plate or just with a napkin.
It takes about 45 minutes to make.
What you need:
For the cake:
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa powder
4.5 dl flour
For the frosting:
50g dark chocolate
4 tablespoons strong coffee
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla powder
3 dl confectioners sugar
Sprinkles or coconut flakes.
How you make it:
Start making the cake:
Step1: Preheat your oven to 225°C.
Step2: Start melting you butter.
Step3: While your butter is melting mix the eggs and sugar together until they've become white and fluffy.
Step4: Add the vanilla sugar, baking powder and cocoa powder and combine it well with the egg mixture.
Step5: Add the milk half a dl at a time and in between each addition of milk add 2 dl of flour and then just add the last 0.5 dl of flour after.
Step6: Ad the melted butter to the mix.
Step7: Butter an oven dish and then spread out the batter in an even layer.
Step8: Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. You should be able to stick a toothpick in the middle and have it come out clean.
Make the frosting while the cake is in the oven:
Step9: Melt the butter and add the chocolate to the butter so that it melts.
Step10: Add the coffee, cocoa powder and vanilla powder. Combine it well and make sure that there are no lumps.
Step11: Add the confectioners sugar one dl at a time.
Step12: Spread it out over the cake so that the cake is covered by a shiny layer of frosting.
Step13: Sprinkle some sprinkles or coconut flakes on top.
Step14: Cut it into pieces. Doesn't get easier!
Store it in the refrigerator until you want to serve it.
