Chocolate is one of the best ways to make long autumn evenings pleasant. I dipped it in batter this time and baked it in the oven. This cake is worth the indulgence.

In my recipe notebook, you'll find complicated and time-consuming recipes and simple recipes for quick desserts. During autumn, I eagerly reach for a cake with a whole bar of chocolate. It serves as a delicious filling that reveals itself when cutting the cake. Both milk and dark chocolate work well here, and those who love intense sweetness can also opt for caramel or white chocolate. The preparation takes just 10 minutes, and after another 25 minutes in the oven, I pull out a tray filled with a delicious dessert.

Cake with a bar of chocolate

Ingredients:

                                      
  • 3 eggs,
  • 340 grams of flour,
  • 100 grams of sugar,
  • 17 grams of vanilla sugar,
  • 100 ml of oil,
  • 180 ml of milk,
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder,
  • a pinch of salt,
  • a bar of your favourite chocolate.

Preparation Method:

  1. Crack the eggs into a bowl and beat them with sugar and vanilla sugar until fluffy and light.
  2. Add salt, oil, and milk to the batter and mix briefly.
  3. Sift the flour with baking powder and gradually add it to the batter, constantly mixing.
  4. Line a baking form with parchment paper, grease it with butter, and sprinkle with bread crumbs. Pour in two-thirds of the prepared batter.
  5. Place your favourite chocolate bar in the centre and cover it with the remaining batter.
  6. Put it in an oven preheated to 180°C and bake for 25-30 minutes.

I decorate the finished cake with icing or chocolate glaze. Sometimes, I add almond flakes, chopped nuts, or sugar sprinkles on top. However, there's nothing stopping you from serving the dessert plain, without any decoration. It's simple, delicious, and quick.

Quick homemade icing

Ingredients:

              
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar,
  • 1 tablespoon of warm water,
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional).

Preparation method:

  1. Mix 1 cup of powdered sugar in a small bowl with 1 tablespoon of warm water. Optionally, add a bit of vanilla extract.
  2. Continue mixing until the icing is smooth and without lumps. If it's too thick, add more warm water, a tablespoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. If it's too thin, add a bit more powdered sugar.
  3. Decorate the dessert.
