Bolo de Chocolate da Titi
I remember clearly the day we made this cake recipe for the first time. It was in a cooking book for children from Obélix, the famous "Gaulois" and for everyone it was love at first site. Here at home we call it Titi's Chocolate Cake because it is my youngest sister favorite cake. I do this recipe time and time again in several shapes and sizes and it has never let me down. The secret? Well good butter and good chocolate. If you want to try it, here is the recipe!
- 200 g de açúcar/200 g of sugar
- 200 g de manteiga/200 g of butter
- 200 g de chocolate para culinária/200 g of dark chocolate
- 5 ovos/5 eggs
- 140 g de farinha sem fermento/140 g of flour
Coloque a derreter em banho-maria o chocolate e a manteiga e pré-aqueça o forno a 180ºC. Entretanto separa para duas tigelas as claras e as gemas dos ovos. Adicione às gemas o açúcar, batendo bem. Depois junte o chocolate derretido com a manteiga e bata bem novamente. Adicione então a farinha envolvendo-a no preparado. Por fim junte as claras batidas em castelo bem firme. Deite numa forma untada com manteiga e leve ao forno cerca de 25 a 30 minutos. Saboreie!
Melt the butter and the chocolate in a bain-marie. Pre-heat the oven at 180ºC. In the meantime separate the egg whites and the yolks to two different bowls. Add the sugar to the yolks and beat well. Add the melted sugar and butter and beat again. Then add the flour involving it carefully. Finally join the egg whites, previously beaten into soft peaks. Pour this mixture into a a greased baking pan, previously greased with butter and bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes. Enjoy!
