Steamed Chocolate Cake
Method
  • Melt the chocolate and butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Set aside to cool to room temperature.
  • In a mixer, beat the egg yolks and half of the sugar with the whisk attachment. When it becomes creamy and fluffy (5-7 minutes), add the chocolate mixture and the flour that has been sifted.
  • Release the mixing bowl from the stand and clean thoroughly, making sure to wipe it from any water so that it is completely dry. Whisk the egg whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks start to form (1-2 minutes). Gradually add the remaining sugar. Beat just until stiff glossy peaks form.
  • Using a spatula, add 1/3 of the meringue to the chocolate mixture. Mix until completely incorporated and the mixture is not so thick. Then, add another 1/3 of the meringue, this time gently folding it in with the spatula, until combined. (This is done so that the mixture becomes as light and fluffy as possible.. like a mousse). Add the final 1/3 of the meringue and fold in gently again.
  • Transfer the mixture to a 30 cm spring form. Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and place a plate over the spring form, for 1 hour. This is done so that the steam stays trapped inside and continues to cook the cake.
  • When cool, refrigerate, so that the cake becomes firmer and you are ready to taste the marvellous steamed chocolate cake.
