Tiempo de Cocción

Preheat oven to 200C

For 30 to 35 minutes at 180 ° C



Preheat oven to 200C

In a bowl, mix the following ingredients: Sugar, flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. 

Mix the eggs, milk, oil, vanilla, and Kacoa’s 65% Intense Coverture (previously melted in the microwave). Mix at medium speed until you achieve a creamy mixture, and then add the dry ingredients while mixing. Once that reaches a smooth consistency, add the hot water, and mix for two more minutes. 

Pour the mixture into a mold of approximately 20 cm covered with wax paper, place it in the oven, and reduce temperature to 180 C. 

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Once the cake is baked, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool before cutting it into two equal layers. 

Place chocolate frosting on top of one of the cake layers and add Kacoa’s 65% Mild coverture. Top it off with the remaining cake layer and cover the cake’s exterior with the chocolate buttercream. Finally, decorate with chocolate ganache as you desire. 


Buttercream Preparation:

Whip the buttercream in a bowl and gently add the powdered sugar. 

Add vanilla, cocoa powder, and milk while mixing until you get a thick mixture. 


Chocolate Frosting Preparation:

Add sugar, flour, cocoa powder, and milk to a pot and mix. Place the mixture on low heat and continuously fold until you reach a thick consistency.

Then, add vanilla essence and pour the mixture into a bowl. Cover it with plastic wrap and place it in the fridge to cool. 

Now, add butter to the mixer and mix until you reach a creamy texture and it doubles its volume. Once this happens, add the previously made mixture and keep mixing until you reach a homogenous mixture.
