Chocolate Cake With Chili Pepper

  • Difficulty: experienced


50 gr Bitter cocoa

180 gr Butter

4 gr Chili pepper

300 gr Dark covering chocolate

4 Eggs

100 gr Icing sugar


Step 1

Melt the chocolate over a baine marie together with the chili pepper, then add the chopped butter a little at a time. Remove the pan from the hob and remove the chili pepper, which will have released all of its flavour.

Step 2

Mix the egg yolks into the icing sugar.

Step 3

Whisk the egg whites with some icing sugar. When the mixture is stiff, draw a cross shape through it with a spatula in order to prevent the mixture from deflating.

Step 4

Mix it all together with the chocolate and add the cocoa.

Step 5

Put the mixture into a buttered 22 cm cake tin and place it in the oven.
