Chocolate cake with three ingredients


Preparation time: 15 minutes

Baking time: 25 minutes


  • Cut the chocolate and butter into pieces, then melt them on low heat or in a water bath. Mix them together on a consistent basis, then remove them from the heat before boiling and let cool.
  • Beat the yolks until they’re thick, add the melted chocolate slowly, and stir until you get a uniform mixture. Then, beat the egg whites until they’re stiff and mix with the previous mixture. Make sure that no white lumps remain.
  • Pour the mixture into a removable round mold approximately 20 centimeters in diameter.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Check it with a toothpick and take it out of the oven when the toothpick comes out dry. Be careful not to overcook the cake, and allow it to cool before taking it out of the mold. It’s normal for the cake to shrink in size.

This cake has a rich cocoa flavor. Therefore, it’s easy to combine it with other snacks, such as vanilla ice cream, berries or fresh fruits. In addition, you can serve it to your liking, cold or warm, because of the different textures.

  • Mix the cream cheese, vanilla extract, juice and lemon zest in a deep bowl. Then, add the sugar and stir to mix them all together.
  • Add the whipped cream and stir until the cream becomes homogeneous, then put it in a pastry piping bag. The cream needs to be very cold. You can beat it with some electric rods or by hand.
  • Put seven cookies in a serving dish in the shape of a flower. Spread a layer of lemon cream over them. Next, add seven more cookies and another layer of lemon cream. Continue adding the layers until there’s no more lemon cream left. You can decorate it to your liking.
