Thanks to cocoa, and if you prefer to make the recipe even more delicious, you can enrich it with coconut.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH A SOFT HEART

For the cocoa mixture:

-230 g of type “00” flour

– Four eggs

– 165 g of butter

– 165 g of sugar

– 50 ml of milk

– vanilla essence or one sachet of vanillin

– One packet of yeast

– 40 g of bitter cocoa powder

For the heart with coconut:

– One egg white

– 80 ml of milk

– 150 g of dehydrated coconut

– 130 g of sugar

– One tablespoon of cornflour

PREPARATION OF THE COCOA CAKE

If you want to prepare the recipe very quickly, you can also avoid preparing the heart of coconut and making a simple cocoa cake. Otherwise, here’s how to do everything, starting from the inside:

For the heart of coconut

  1. Whisk the egg white in a bowl.
  2. Combine the sugar, cornstarch, dehydrated coconut and milk and mix all the ingredients well.
  3. Keep aside.

For the dough

  1. Work the softened butter with the sugar and add only the egg yolks (set aside the egg whites: DO NOT THROW THEM) and whip.
  2. Add the flour, milk, baking powder, vanilla essence, and finally the cocoa and mix well.
  3. In another bowl beat the egg whites until stiff and then add them to the cocoa mixture, stirring with a spatula from the bottom upwards.
  4. Grease the mold and pour half of the cocoa mixture, then pour the coconut filling and close with the remaining half of the cocoa mixture.
  5. Bake at 190 degrees for 40 minutes.
  6. Finally, I remind you that the ideas for decorating the chocolate cake are many. I prefer a nice sprinkling of icing sugar and flakes of dark chocolate or cocoa powder.
