Juicy Chocolate Cake

For the past five years I have been making healthy desserts for me and my family. The aim has not just been to create desserts that are "not harmful", but that are actually good for you. And most of the time I succeed - the desserts look good, taste delicious and my son eat them with great appetite.

But this week C turned four years old - and I have a feeling that things are about to change.

I definitely felt a certain amount of pressure when organizing his birthday party. However, I do feel that I managed to make the "traditional birthday food" in a relatively healthy way.

For dinner the boys ate organic veal sausages from a local farm and for dessert they ate chocolate cake and jelly made from pure appleraspberry juice (with a little honey).

The chocolate cake was unbelievably good, even though I "went a little crazy" when decorating it.

Finally, the boys went on a treasure hunt in the woods and dug up a chest with goody bags - the bags were filled with small things like pencils and bouncy balls, raisins and even an organic lollipop.

And yes, the boys ate with good appetite - although they made it clear that I could not have skipped the candy on top of the cake...

Chocolate Cake

You need

6 egg yolks
10 tablespoons honey or other natural sweetener
4 tablespoons rapadura or other natural sweetener
1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla powder
50 g cacao powder
150 g of almond flour
180 g butter
40 g cacaco butter

250 g unpasteurized butter
about 15 tablespoons of honey or other natural sweetener
3 tablespoons cacao
1 tablespoon vanilla powder
6 egg yolks or unpasteurized cream

Mix the egg yolks and sweetener until you get a thick and fluffy consistency. Then add the vanilla powder, cacao and almond flour. Melt butter and cacao butter before adding it to the rest of the mix.

Bake the cake on the middle shelf at 175 degrees Celsius for about 45-50 minutes.

Let the cake cool in the mold for about 15 minutes before flipping it over on a cooling rack. Once the cake has cooled, it can be divided in two and filled with icing - spread the rest on top of the cake.

To make the icing, mix butter, honey, cacao, vanilla powder and egg yolks / cream until you get a smooth consistency. Spread on the cake and decorate.
