Wellness in Chocolateheaven

Some people like to experiment with chocolate and cake and this is why I share not only pictures but for one’s also a recipie on demand.

We also need a cake (sponge-biscuit): a / 500g egg white, 100g fine sugar

                                  b / 500g fine almond powder, 500g powdersugar and 125g of plain flower

Whipping a/ 10 min and with hands finally slowly b/ the powders in first whipped egg white and sugar.

This recipie is for one 60x40cm bakingplater of 1cm hight.

In the oven about 12 min by 190°C, cool of on the table.

On this biscuit you may add a croustillant of praliné: 600g praliné (60% hazelnuts-almonds) 125g cacaobutter, 125g éclat d’or (crunchy biscuits) this recipie could do for a nice layer 60 x 40 cm.

    You’ve heard of a sugar coma, if I should eat this it would be a chocolate coma, what a way to go… for a few moments. Death by chocolate is something totally different, don’t want to experience that!
