Chocolate Cake recipe

"There's nothing better than a good friend, except a good friend with CHOCOLATE"
The Pickwick Papers

Given the success of my chocolate mousse recipes, I have decided to share a chocolate cake recipe with you just to keep the goods spirits up in case you are dieting since after Christmas.

150 gr butter
230 gr sugar
6 eggs
1 pinch of salt
5 gr of vanilla sugar
200 gr dark chocolate (e.g. Crémant)
125 gr ground almonds
125 gr ground plain biscuits
375 gr powder sugar
4 tablespoons chocolate powder

Whisk butter until foam-like.
Add sugar, yolk of the 6 eggs, salt and vanilla sugar, stir again.
Melt chocolate with 3 tablespoons of hot water and add to the mixture.
Add almonds and biscuits.
Whip the whites until stiff, add to the mixture and mix well.
Grease mold with butter, pour mixture into 24 cm diameter cake mould.
Bake on lowest position in oven at 180°C for 50 to 60 minutes.

Mix powder sugar with 4 tablespoons of water. Put 1 tablespoon aside.
Add chocolate powder to the rest of the mixture, add a few drops of water and stir.
Let cake cool off after baking. Pour chocolate mixture evenly over cake.
Form a small, funnel-shaped paper with a tiny opening. Put the mixture set aside beforehand into paper cone and draw 8 concentric circles on cake.
Use a small knife and pull 8 lines from the center towards the edge and 8 lines from the edge towards the center alternating.
