Chocolate Cake Cream

To Decorate and Soak the Cake

  • 1 cup Whipping Cream for soaking
  • 1/2 cup Irish Cream Liqueur for soaking
  • 3 tbsp Cacao Powder decorate
  • 1 Chocolate Bar decorate


  • Beat eggs (no need to separate them) with sugar until it’s three times in volume. Sift flour together with cacao. Using a spatula, fold in flour by thirds; be very gentle with dough, so you don't over mix it and lose the fluffiness. Place dough into 9 inch pan. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes, check it with a wooden toothpick. If the cake is ready, dough should not stick to the toothpick.
    4 bowls one with 5 eggs, another with cocoa, third with flour and fourth with sugar
  • Once the cake cools, cut the cake into three or four slices.
