Prep time: 30 min

Cooking time:25 min

Serves: 6-8


    Sponge cake:

  • 3 eggs room temperature, medium size
  • 75 sugar (1/3 cup)
  • 40 ml vegetable oil (1/5 cup)
  • 75 g flour (2/3 cup)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • Whipped cream:

  • 125 ml whipping cream, very cold (1/2 cup)
  • 1 tbs sugar
  • Chocolate frosting (two ways):

    First option (hard chocolate cover)

  • 350 g dark chocolate (12 oz)
  • Second option (fudgy chocolate cover)

  • 200 ml heavy cream (4/5 cup)
  • 50 g butter (3,5 tbs)
  • 250 g dark chocolate (9 oz)
  • Equipment:

  • This mold


  1. Start by making the cake. Preheat oven to 180 º C (350º F) and grease the mold (I used cake release spray). Place eggs and sugar in a medium bowl, and beat on high speed until thick and pale.
  2. Beat in the oil
  3. By hand, stir in the sifted flour and baking powder, and mix well
  4. Pour the mixture in the mold (fill 3/4 capacity) and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven, let it cool for about 15 minutes, and then unmold carefully and let cool completely.
  5. Then prepare whipped cream to fill the cake. In a bowl, place cream (very cold) and sugar, and beat until light and fluffy.
  6. Slice cake in two, and fill with the whipped cream. Then choose if you want a crunchy chocolate frosting, or a smoother one
  7. For a hard chocolate cover, choose “first option” ingredients.
  8. Clean the mold we used for baking the cake. Melt chopped chocolate (using a double boiler or the microwave)
  9. Pour it in the mold, until the bottom of the mold is completely covered with chocolate. Cut off the borders of the cake using a sharp knife, and place it inside the mould. Then fill the mold completely with chocolate, and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to set. Once set, remove the mold from the refrigerator, and unmold
  10. For a creamier chocolate cover, choose the “second option” ingredients. Pour cream on a medium saucepan, bring to boil, remove from heat, and add chopped chocolate and butter. Allow to rest for a few minutes, and then stir until dissolved.
  11. Place cake on a wire rack, and pour frosting over it, being careful to cover the cake completely. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours to set
