- 75 grams of butter
- 75 grams of sugar
- 75 grams of flour

- Put the chocolate in a bowl and melt it in the microwave at low temperature for 15 seconds while making sure it doesn’t burn. We do the same with butter. We let cool.
- Beat the eggs with the sugar in a bowl. Add the melted chocolate and butter and mix everything together.
- Add the sifted flour, pouring it through a strainer and shaking it to incorporate air, and stir until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
- Grease some metal flans with a little butter inside and sprinkle with cocoa powder, shaking well to cover the entire surface and remove excess. We fill the flans with the mixture and hit them a few times, letting them fall against the table so that they settle well.
- We put them in the fridge for 12 hours. We put the coolants in the oven preheated to 225º for approximately 8 minutes. We take out, unmold passing a knife around and serve immediately; we can do it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Three layer chocolate cake
- 150 grams of dark chocolate
- 150 grams of milk chocolate
- 150 grams of white chocolate
- 120 grams of sugar
- 750 ml of liquid cream to mount
- 750ml whole milk
- 3 sachets of curd
For the base:
- 1 package of cookies
- 100 grams of butter
- 1 pinch of cinnamon powder
- Chocolate balls
Step by step recipe:
- To make the base, we crush the cookies with an electric grinder and melt the butter in the microwave. Mix the biscuits, butter and a pinch of cinnamon, and form a paste with which we will cover the base of a removable round mold previously greased with butter. Put in the fridge to harden.
- For each layer we use 250 ml of cream, 250 ml of milk, 150 grams of chocolate, 40 grams of sugar and 1 sachet of curd.
- We start with the white chocolate layer. Put a little of the milk in a glass and dissolve the curd envelope in it. Put the rest of the milk, cream and sugar in a saucepan. When it starts to boil, add the chocolate and stir until melted. Add the curd dissolved in the milk and let it boil over low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour the mixture over the biscuit base.
- We repeat the process in the same way with the milk chocolate, and pour it on top of the white chocolate layer.
- We do it again with the dark chocolate, and we pour it over the milk chocolate. Reserve in the fridge until the next day to set well.
- Unmold and decorate with the chocolate balls.
- 250 grams of chocolate
- 50 grams of butter
- 100 grams of sugar
- 2 eggs
- 200 grams of flour
- ½ teaspoon chemical yeast
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- Powdered sugar
Step by step recipe:
- Melt the chocolate in a bain-marie by placing it in a bowl over a saucepan with boiling water and stir until it dissolves. We can also melt it by putting it in a bowl in the microwave at low temperature for a couple of minutes.
- Add the butter to the chocolate and stir well to integrate both.
- With the help of electric rods, beat the eggs with the powdered sugar and the sugar for 5 minutes, until the mixture doubles its volume and turns whitish. Add the melted chocolate with the butter and mix everything.
- We incorporate the flour, the yeast and the salt, sifting it with a strainer to incorporate air, and we unite it by mixing just enough. Reserve in the fridge for 2 hours.
- We remove the mixture, take portions and form balls. We coat them in icing sugar and place them on the oven tray covered with parchment paper so they don’t stick.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180º for 10 minutes. We remove and let cool.
