Serves 6 persons

Cake batter

6 eggs
6 tbs of sugar
6 tbs of flour
1 tbs baking powder
1 vanilla essence

3 yolks
4 tbs of powdered sugar
200 grams of butter

Cake batter:

2. Add in the egg yolks the sugar and mix well until the mixture becomes creamy.
3. Add the yolk mixture into the egg whites foam bit by bit together with the baking powder and vanilla essence.
4. Add the flour one tbs at a time in the mixture.
5. Take a round cake pan, coat it with butter and flour and add the cake mixture. Put it in the hot oven at 270 degrees Celsius for about 30 minutes. To check if it’s done, poke the batter with a toothpick. If it comes out clean, it means it done.

Cocoa Cake filling:

Putting it all together: 

1. Cut the sponge cake into 3 layers. Add in between each layer a good amount of cocoa sauce. Then, cover all layers with the sauce. Decorate as you wish.
