Today’s recipe: The yummiest chocolate cake (in less than 30min)

A delicious chocolate cake in under 30min (mixing ingredients, baking AND washing dishes) that will beat even your favorite bakery? No problem!


  • 250g dark chocolate (chocolate with 60-70% cocoa content will give the deepest flavors but any dark chocolate will do)
  • 175g butter
  • 75g flour
  • 80g sugar (sometimes I’ll mix coconut sugar with white sugar)
  • 5 eggs

Preparation – 20min

  • Turn on the oven to 210 degrees
  • Melt the chocolate and butter either in the microwave or bain marie


Turn the microwave to medium heat for about 1 minute to start with. Remove from the microwave and stir. Repeat heating at shorter intervals, 15 to 20 seconds, stirring in between, until the chocolate is completely melted and has a smooth consistency.

Bain marie

Break chocolate and place into a heatproof bowl. Sit over a pan of barely simmering water (a bain marie) and allow the chocolate to melt, stirring occasionally.

  • Beat the eggs with the sugar until the mix doubles in volume
  • Slowly add the flour, and the melted chocolate and butter
  • Pour the mix into a mold and cook for 10min (this can vary depending on your oven). Do not overcook the cake, the goal is to keep it moist (actually undercooked) in the middle
  • Leave it to cool 10 minutes before eating

(Note: this cake cannot be unmolded because of its very soft consistency)
