Chocolate Sponge Cake – Sokolatopita

Chocolate mmmmhhh a favorite sweet that most just love.  I haven’t made this Chocolate Sponge cake in a while, and I decided to make it last night. I had all the ingredients and it only took about 35 minutes. Just mixed, baked and it was ready! 

When the cake finally cooled off, it was time to start pouring the homemade chocolate syrup on top, I have to admit just looking at it had me drooling and I’m not even a chocolate lover…Me like white Chocolate. 🙂 



Every dish or dessert I make I have to taste, this cake has me second guessing about not liking chocolate!!! 🙂  I added Cognac into the batter just to give it a bit of twist 🙂

If you haven’t had Chocolate Sponge Cake try this recipe you’ll love it!!

Ingredients:

Syrup:

1 cup water

250 grams Butter

1 1/2 cup Sugar

3/4 cups Cocoa

1/2 cup Cognac (optional)

2 tablespoons Vanilla powder extract or liquid

Sprinkles (optional)

Cake batter:

1 1/2 cups All purpose flour

4 Eggs

2 teaspoons Baking powder

1 pinch Salt

Preparation:

 

P1000796

In a large sauce pan melt  butter, sugar, cocoa, water.

 

P1000802

 In a large bowl add the flour, baking power, salt and eggs.  Beat nicely and set aside.

P1000803

Before pouring syrup into the batter, set aside 1 small cup of syrup.  Pour syrup very slowly and mix.

P1000801

Stir cake batter and add in the Vanilla extract.

P1000800

Pour in  Cognac. Pour batter into a buttered baking pan, and bake for 25 minutes at 180 degrees.

 

P1000808

This cake will not rise like the normal sponge cake, this is a bit flatter, buttt two pieces one on top of the other will absolutely do the trick, as you can see in the picture.  🙂 

The cup of syrup that was set aside you can use to pour onto each piece as an added addition,  I added sprinkles on this piece 🙂

Hope you enjoy this recipe!!!

    Looks so good Sophie! I always add coffee to my chocolate recipes -of course I do have a dependency on coffee :), but Cognac sounds great!
