This cake has been following me around on instagram and various blogs for a whole while now – and my little sister’s birthday last week was the perfect occasion to finally give it a try. And I have to admit that I am over the moon with the result! Of course it does not only look quite special, but tastes like heaven, too…
What you’ll need:
100g brown sugar
30g cocoa powder
2tbsp baking powder
50g grated chocolate
…and for the filling:
50g powdered sugar
15g cocoa powder
1 package of m&m’s or whatever decor you like
app. 35 KitKat sticks for the border
Mix eggs and sugar until smooth. Add flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking powder while stirring with a hand mixer on the lowest level. Then fold in the grated chocolate pieces and fill the dough into a spring form (18cm). Bake for 30 minutes (175°C).
Once the cake is totally cooled down you can carefully divide into two. For the filling scramble mascarpone, powdered sugar and cocoa powder and spread half of the cream onto the lower flan case. Top it with the other half and spread the rest on top and on the sides of the cake. Now, stick the KitKats around it, if you like you can fix it with a ribbon. Decorate as you like – enjoy!
