This time, i did not make the usual Nastar shape, i made into ball and enclosed version. The vibrant purple colour of my ube cakes is a result of combining the grated ube, violet gel paste or food powder, and the ube flavouring. Bake in the preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
It’s a matter of heating cream > adding in the chocolate chips > waiting for it to melt > stir > done. I was given the free range cook book and this was the first recipe i made and it has now become the most addictive cake that i just keep making over and over.
Next time I think I will replace the water either with coffee /espresso or orange liqueur. Hi, there’s a comment below about buttermilk in the cake but this isn’t in the recipe so can I substitute buttermilk for the milk or yoguurt! I served it to my guests as a yummy gluten free version of the devil’s chocolate cake and they absolutely loved it.
You could also pimp your cake with different fillings, such as sea salted caramel For more bakes that embrace the wonderful ingredient cocoa, check out our chocolate cake gallery or this delicious red velvet cake recipe. I knew the cake was locked securely in the bedroom, but if I could just get them to let me inside… maybe.
For the chocolate hazelnut glaze, pour the cooled toasted hazelnuts into a food processor with the cocoa powder and icing sugar and blitz to a smooth paste. The problem I had was when I cut the cake-the delicious whipped cream frosting makes the layers slip and slide.
