I’ve bookmarked this recipe from Helena’s blog for more than 2 months but until two days ago I suddenly remembered that this recipe does not have butter as one of the ingredients. It is a very simple chocolate cake but yummy and not very sweet too with using dairy whipping cream. The method of mixing the ingredients is really easy and the texture of the cake is not dense with tender crumbs. I baked this cake in cupcake liners so that I can serve them individually for tea break but you can also bake it in a loaf pan. If you still have any leftover whipping cream at home and ran out of ideas what to do with it, why not give this Whipping Cream Chocolate Cake recipe a try.
Whipping Cream Chocolate Cake
- 150 g dairy whipping cream
- 3 large eggs (70g each) - room temperature
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 80 g brown sugar
- 120 g self-raising flour - or cake flour + 3/4 tsp baking powder
- 30 g cocoa powder - Valrhona or Hershey's)
- some chocolate chips for topping
- Whisk up dairy whipping cream with an electric hand held mixer to soft peaks at medium speed (about 4 minutes) and set aside. (to test it, just the drip the cream on the surface and it should stay there for a 1-2 seconds then you have the right consistency).
- In another clean bowl, whisk eggs, vanilla extract and brown sugar at high speed about 3-4 minutes at soft peaks form, no need to be very thick as double volume. To test it, you can write a letter "O" on the surface of egg batter and it should stay there for a few seconds)
