Wood-Fired Chocolate Cake
160g chocolate 70%
160g salted butter
A few drops of lemon curd.
This is the most delicious cake recipe ever.
Put a pan on top of your outdoor oven. Melt the butter, sugar, and chocolate together. When this is done, add the eggs one by one, mix thoroughly, and pour it in a cake tin or in this case a cast iron pan. If you want to be sure the cake won’t stick place some baking paper on the bottom of your tin or pan.
Cook in the Outdoor Oven for about 15 minutes, turning it around once in a while.
With this cake it is very handy to use the thermo door, so you can close the baking compartment and see the temperature. It is very important to keep the temperature stable somewhere between 150°C and 190°C. To achieve a stable temperature make sure to chop your wood very small and add a piece every 5 to 10 minutes.
After that baby comes out, you are going to be so happy!! But first, let it cool down for about 20 minutes, and then you are ready to dig in. The last time I made this recipe, I spread crème fraîche on the cake and covered it with grilled peaches and basil, and I added a bit of lemon curd. Mamma Mia!
But you can eat it however you like. Enjoy!
