Chocolate cake for children
How to make a chocolate cake for children. I recommend parents to see this recipe, to pay close attention to my every step to make it. E great idea to put on a birthday to your sons and daughters, even on celebrations like the days of Christmas. I assure you, not only children will like this cake.
A chocolate cake like the one made from scratch, I admit that it can be a little time consuming to prepare. Must do 3 separate preparations and then assemble the cake with the appropriate waiting times. But if you know how to handle the kitchen, it shouldn’t take you longer 75 minutes, which I indicate in the recipe. In moments of waiting, you can do other things that are waiting for you, though really, waiting time there is only one that takes time to cool the cake. The remaining steps can be done more or less at once if you organize yourself well.
As for the materials, you do not need anything sophisticated. You will see how I use a mixer to whip the cream, but maybe with normal stick stirrer; you will see me use one confectionery saw to cut the cake, but it can be done with a long knife anyway. It is true that it won’t look so good and that a normal cake mixer and saw, they are not tools that are too expensivebut there depends on the perfectionism of each one and how many times you will use these utensils. On the other hand, I also used 20 cm removable hoop shape. diameter.
General tips for the perfect chocolate cake:
“If you’re going to make a cake bigger or smaller than mine, you’ll have to.” adjust the quantities proportionally. When baking, it is essential to be careful in quantities, because 5 grams more than anything they can confuse the recipe.
– The time to bake the cake depends on each oven. This means that what is in my oven for 25 minutes, in yours can be 22 or 28. Everyone knows their oven. It also depends on the size of the cake and especially on the thickness. Bigger cake will require more time than less, this is pure logic.
– I recommend pay close attention to the video. You will see details such as the size of the casserole and the bowl to make the chocolate coating, which is very difficult to explain in writing. The visual support offered by the video It is essential to facilitate the preparatory work of this chocolate cake.
Ingredients for 8 people
1 – We are preparing to beat the cake batter
We start by placing the eggs with the sugar in the bowl of our mixer and start beating at maximum speed for 6-7 minutes. The result should be a whitish mixture that has significantly increased in size.
2 – Add liquid ingredients
At this point, reduce the speed to medium intensity and add the oil. Leave the beating until it is fully integrated and do the same with the milk.
3 – Add the remaining ingredients
Reduce the speed to a minimum and add the flour mixed with the yeast, tablespoon by tablespoon, until everything is integrated into the dough.
4 – We prepare the form and the dough
Spread the form (remember that the quantities I use are for a form with a diameter of 20 cm) with a spray and pour the whole dough inside.
5 – Bake the cake
We turn on the oven at 180ºC with heating up and down WITHOUT a fan. When it is hot, we will bake the cake for about 25 minutes. After this time we will pierce the cake with a metal skewer. If it comes out clean, it means that the cake is ready and therefore we can take it out of the oven.
6 – We are about to melt the chocolate
When the cake is completely cold, we will prepare the chocolate coating. Place the pot on the fire with 2 fingers of water and place a metal bowl on top without touching the water to prepare baini-marie. Now add the chopped chocolate fondant and butter and start stirring so that they melt little by little.
7 – Allow the chocolate to cool
When we have melted chocolate, we will remove the casserole from the heat and in turn the bowl from the casserole. We will let it harden (without hardening) while we assemble the cake.
8 – We cut the cake
We have a round tray in which we will put a few pieces of aluminum foil to avoid contamination, so it is easy to remove them later. Cut the top of the cake with a pastry saw or knife to get a flat surface. Then cut the resulting piece in half.
9 – We start assembling the cake
Remove the top half and put a good layer of whipped cream, trying to adjust the edges to the surface of the cake. Put the other part on top and spread more cream all over the country. This will make the chocolate bars stick together and not fall off. Place the chocolates all over the side of the cake until it is completely covered.
10 – Add the chocolate
At this point we will pour the chocolate coating on the cake and although it is not necessary, we will spread it with great care so as not to throw the chocolates.
11 – We finish the decoration
Spread some sweets on the chocolate, which will make them stick when it hardens. We are waiting for the chocolate to harden and we can enjoy this delicious cake.
12 – We enjoyed the cake
