Chocolate cake

I don’t usually bake too often, especially since it’s just me and my daughter here and knocking down a cake or something like that between the two of us can be a bit much. But I saw this recipe and I just had to try it, and I was so glad I did cause it’s deeeelecious! Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting with chocolate decor, I died a little and went to chocolate heaven!

Ingredients:

Chocolate cake:

  • 5 oz sugar.
  • 1 egg.
  • 8.5 oz flour.
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar.
  • 2.5 oz cocoa powder
  • 6.8 oz kefir.
  • 3 oz butter.

Frosting:

  • 5 oz powdered sugar.
  • 2.6 oz butter.
  • 4.4 oz cream cheese.
  • 1/2 egg.
  • 2.6 oz melted chocolate.

Decoration:

  • Kvikk lunsj chocolate (An alternative here would be Kit Kat, but personally I think Kvikk lunsj is far, far better tasting than Kit Kat!)

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F.
    Whip sugar and egg to a smooth consistency. Melt the butter and stir in the kefir to a smooth batter.
  2. Add flour, baking soda, salt, vanilla sugar, and cocoa powder and mix well to a airy and smooth batter.
  3. Pour batter into a baking dish and bake in oven for approximatly 40 minutes (Or until you stick the cake with a tooth pick and the pick comes out clean.) Cool cake.
  4. Be sure that the butter and cream cheese is room temp. Mix them with powdered sugar and the egg to a cream. Melt the chocolate in a water bath and pour the chocolate into the cream mixture while the whip is running.
  5. Cut the cake into squares. Put the frosting in frosting bags and make big swirl tops on the cake slices, then put Kvikklunsj (or Kitkat) bars into the frosting.
