Fluffy Gateau au Chocolat

Fluffy Gateau au Chocolat

This Fluffy Gateau au Chocolat is chocolatey, moist, soft, and melts in your mouth. Tastes great when it's served warm with ice cream and raspberries for some tartness. It has easily made its way to one of my top favourite chocolate cake recipes. I just love how the light texture packs a surprising punch of dark chocolate-y flavour.

This chocolate cake recipe was really quick and easy to make as it was mostly just mixing and placing it in the oven! The good thing about cakes like these is that they don't have to look perfect, so it's very simple to decorate and serve.  Also, it's hard to go wrong with chocolate ;)

I've also gone for a healthier alternative with ingredients by using dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate, and skipping the butter! A great treat for those who want to indulge without feeling too guilty.

With some time to spare, I went the extra mile to decorate my chocolate cake! Used royal icing to draw the bear's face. For its ears, mould the cake crumbs into a ball and press them against the sides of the cake.

Do give this recipe a try! Highly recommended~
