Simple lime and chocolate cake


I intended to do something completely different, but I chickened out so you will get a simple lime and chocolate cake instead. The original recipe had almonds, apples and water in it. In my version this was switched for lime and coconut flakes.

Oven temperature: 200˚C Time range: 30 – 35 minutes

Ingredients:

150 grams of baking chocolate

150 grams of butter

¾ deciliters of sugar

3 eggs

1 ½ deciliters of wheat flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

2 tablespoons of lime juice

2 tablespoons of coconut flakes

  1. Chop the chocolate and melt it over water (picture with example below)
  2. Chop the butter into small parts and mix it properly with the sugar
  3. Whisk down one egg at the time
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients and whisk properly.
  5. Cover a roasting pan with baking paper and pour the dough into it. If you don’t want to use a roasting pan use something with similar high edges. The pan should be about 20 x 30 centimeters.
  6. Put the pan into the oven in 200˚C for about 30 – 35 minutes. Then cut it into pieces.
This is how I melted the chocolate. The most important thing to think of is probably to use something that wont melt when it’s in water (avoid plastic containers) steel of something made of metal is good and don NOT get water into the chocolate.
