I haven’t had the opportunity to make a crazy cake for a while! I hope you like the cake I made for Seb to celebrate the end of his degree – I’ll admit, it’s quite random! I just brought together two things that I know he likes… Puffins… and maths… what could be a better cake combination. Oh, and chocolate.
And forest fruits in fact, although that’s more because I love fruit with cake & chocolate. So as you may have guessed this is a Black Forest Gateau. A fantastic cake for several reasons… firstly, it only consists of three ingredients – cocoa powder, eggs, and sugar. So as long as you can separate eggs you can probably make it! Consequently, it has no flour, which makes it really light and spongy – and good for gluten-free folk.
Ok, technically it requires fruit & cream too… but they don’t count as ingredients, they’re… um… decorations. And in fact, my cake also has a ganache under the white icing, mainly because I had some left over! It made it absolutely delicious too.
