Creamy Chocolate Gateau – Schokoladencreme-Torte

It’s chocolate cake time! Ladies and gents, this is a special gateau but it is not that difficult to make. They recommend to use Mondamin which is a popular extra corn starch for baking cakes and sweet dishes in Germany. I have never seen it in US supermarkets, neither on Amazon, but I found it at an Ebay store “A taste of Germany”; they sell German products only on Ebay. Happy Baking!

4 eggs
4 tbsp water
200 g sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
100 g flour
100 g mondamin – extra fine corn starch for cakes, I found it on Ebay, see here:
2 tsp baking powder
200 g butter
200 g sugar
30 g mondamin 3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tsp coffee powder (instant)
1/4 l milk
How to make it
– Whisk 4 egg white with water until firm and add slowly sugar and vanilla sugar
– Carefully mix in the egg yolks, flour, mondamin and a hint of salt
– Grease a spring form with butter (26cm) and fill in the dough
– Bake it for 30-35 minutes on 175 degrees C (350 F)
– when done take it out of form and let it cool off
– cut the cake in half

For the Filling:
– Mix mondamin and cocoa powder, boil it with the milk until thick, and let it cool off
– Whisk Butter, sugar and instant coffee until foamy
– Mix in the cocoacream spoon after spoon
– With a wide spoon fill the cream onto the bisquit cake (see picture, wrap the whole cake in cream), and with a spoon decorate the top

Well, that’s a cake which will make you popular!
