My Favourite Chocolate Cake

Since today's my boyfriend's birthday, I had the perfect reason to make my Chocolate cake favourite. The cake is juicy and tasty, and with squash and refined rape oil, it's (close to) healthy too!

Chocolate Squash Cake

170 g dark chocolate (70 percent cocoa)
3 dl plain wheat flour
1/2 tsp becarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar
1 1/4 dl sugar
225 g grated squash
2 eggs
1 3/4 dl refined rape oil (or sun seed oil)

Mix together flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon, and vanilla sugar. Add sugar, grated squash, mixture of egg and oil, and melted chocolate. Bake the cake in a spring form cake tin, at 180 degrees, for
50 minutes or until the cake is set, but slightly wobbly in the centre.

Chocolate Icing

150 g margarine
5 dl powdered sugar
1 dl cocoa powder
3 tbsp strong coffee

Spread the icing evenly over the cake while it is still warm.
Serve your lucky guests and enjoy!

Nam nam, min favoritt!! Jeg lagde den faktisk forrige helg! Stor suksess. Kan anbefale å ha et lag med fyll inni også;)

Hils RP og gratuler fra meg!!
