Chocolate cake

All chocolate cake recipe

Summary: This is the cake that I prepared for my daughter for her 17th birthday, she was celebrating her birthday with these girlfriends and friends, parents were forbidden … I admit that for the decoration, I did not force too much, but in terms of taste… .. I like to use this top-of-the-range sponge cake, it absorbs the chocolate and this base, with, becoming one; at the tasting it is a killing this fondant with this chocolate cake … impossible to forget Léonie’s birthday. She especially loves chocolate and especially all chocolate cakes, I really like when she decides to bake a cake. She succeeds every time, she loves baking, no need for my help, just a few times on professional gestures. To come back to my all-chocolate cake, I can’t tell you too much about it, in fact, I didn’t taste it and there was nothing left. But I still have feedback from my daughter’s friends who are super happy and yet in the group there are phenomena…. Well!!!! I have first names but I will be silent.

Partnership with Cognac Pineau Bossis in Saint Bonnet sur Gironde in Charente Maritime

A thought to all those connected from France or abroad in love with French cuisine and these wines, here is a great opportunity for you to buy a quality wine, without any risk, to accompany my recipe for an all-chocolate cake . I selected this Pineau blanc from the Pineau Bossis Cognac estate in Saint Bonnet sur Gironde. After tasting it, I loved its length in the mouth.
White pineau
Made from Ugni blanc and Montils grape varieties and must be obtained after blending in oak barrels ¾ volume of grape juice and ¼ of Cognac. Following aging, the analysis should show a blood alcohol level between 16 ° and 22 °. This Pineau blanc, presents a beautiful straw yellow color supported, limpid and brilliant. On the nose with floral aromas, remains young in the mouth with nuances of fresh grapes and peaches.
