French mocha cake - Fransk mockatårta

Fransk mockatårta

The dream of all chocolate lovers – a scrumptious chocolate cake with a rich taste and slightly creamy inside. Serve with whipped cream.

1 cake, approx 10 to 12 pieces

6 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
5 oz butter or margarine
good 7 oz dark baking chocolate in pieces
1 cup hazelnuts or walnuts
2 tbsps flour
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp instant coffee powder
2 tbsps water

4 tbsps whipping cream
3½ oz dark baking chocolate in pieces
1 tsp vanilla sugar
1 tsp instant coffee powder

Beat eggs and sugar until fluffy for about 1 minute. Melt fat and chocolate over a waterbath. Grind the nuts in an almond grinder or a food processor. Mix them with flour and vanilla sugar, then stir the chocolate mixture and the nuts in the egg batter. Dissolve the coffee powder in hot water and then stir it into the batter.

Pour in a well-greased, floured baking pan, approx 9 inches, and bake in the middle of the oven at 175C/gasmark 4 for about 35 minutes. The cake is best if it’s a little sticky in the middle. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes in the pan, then unmould onto a baking rack to cool completely.

Mix all ingredients for the glaze in a saucepan. Heat until everything has melted and the glaze is smooth. Pour the warm glaze over the cake and let it run down on the sides. Store cold until serving.
