I thought I’d share, on this dreary clouded day, one of my grandmother’s really naughty (and super easy) cake recipes. Well, it’s like a brownie-cake, but even better. Think the naughtiest-possible chocolate creation, and this is probably the outcome; the name given to this calorific beast is psimeno-apsito, Greek for ‘fried-unfried’, which sort of says it all about the consistency. Happy baking!
- 250g butter
- 6 eggs
- 2 1/2 packs of bitter chocolate
- 3 tbs self-raising
- 1/2 cup sugar
Pre-heat the oven at 200C.
- Break the eggs; separate whites (smaller bowl) and yellows (big bowl) in different bowls. Whisk the whites
- In a small pan, melt the butter
- Mix the sugar, butter, and yellows in the big bowl
- Add the three spoons of flour
- Melt the chocolate with milk/cream in a pan, and add to the big bowl. This is the moment you add some liquor too, if that’s your thing
- Mix the whipped whites into the big bowl
- Butter a baking tray/cake form. Sprinkle it with flour
- Put the chocolatey wonder in the oven for 20min or so
- Take it out, and check the consistency with a knife – the outside should be hard, then immediately spongey – and the inside should be sticky chocolate filling.
