World's Best Chocolate Cake


People, friends, women of the earth! I've found it! The best chocolate cake recipe ever.

3 dl all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 dl cocoa (the real 99.9% kind)
3 dl sugar
2 dl brown sugar
3 dl dark chocolate chunks/chips (at least 70% cocoa)
2 dl melted butter
4 eggs

1. Mix the dry ingredients. Mix the wet ingredients. Mix them all together.
2. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 25 minutes.

Eat while still warm.

This cake is ostentatiously called World's Best Chocolate Cake, but I must say, it might just be exactly that.
The secret are the melted chocolate chips, which give it a sort of souffle type moisture. Perfect.

It was so good that all of us ran around with the biggest smiles on our faces all night.

* adapted and translated from here. (The original recipe adds 1 dl of espresso to the mix). First seen on pinterest.

PS. Update: MariLouise wanted to know what a dl is. My inner math genius/the internet tells me that
1dl = 0.422675284 US cups. I think this recipe is forgiving enough that if you just use 1dl = a half cup as a guide,
you'll be fine. :)

Phew. To check out more measuring unit loveliness, go here. I know you want to. :P

That looks so delicious! When you say wheat do you mean wheat does this also mean flour? I'm not sure we have wheat for sale in our shops?

Isa said...

Tracey, oh my goodness, yes! Wheat flour, of course. I read over it and thought something was missing... lol. I fixed it now, thanks. :)

MariLouise, I'm sorry, I hadn't taken my American friends into account. (Don't you guys use, like, ready-made cake mixes in that part of the world :P).

1 dl = 100 ml. Which is exactly 0.422675284 US cups. :)

ohhh... du wirst es kaum glauben... aber ich kann den kuchen förmlich riechen. er sieht genauso fantastisch aus wie von meiner früheren wg-mitbewohnerin marjolaine aus frankreich. sobald wir den kuchen im ofen rochen, kamen wir alle (7ener-wg) aus unseren zimmern gekrochen. der kuchen war binnen weniger minuten weg - wurde noch warm verspeist. JAMMY!!!

lieb grüß dani
