My Favorite Recipe

Whether you’re after an irresistible dessert,
or just something to devour alone in front
of the TV, here’s the favorite recipe of
Thomas Rüppel, chef at Zauberberg.

Chocolate Cake
Serves nine

100 g dark cooking chocolate,
broken into pieces
175 g butter,
plus a little extra to grease tin
4 eggs
Finely grated rind of 1 orange
150 g light demerara sugar
50 g flour
50 g ground almonds
50 g brown chocolate strands
50 g white chocolate strands
Powdered sugar and cocoa powder
for sprinkling

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease
a 20 x 20 cm cake tin and line with
baking paper. Put cooking chocolate
into a bowl with the butter and melt
over a saucepan of simmering water,
stirring constantly. Leave to cool. Beat
eggs, orange rind and sugar until light
and creamy, then stir in butter and
chocolate mix. Finally add the flour,
almonds and chocolate strands. Pour
mixture into the tin and bake for 25
minutes. (The cake should still be
slightly damp.) Leave to cool in the
tin, then remove carefully. Cut into
nine squares, dust with powdered
sugar and cocoa powder and serve
with vanilla ice cream and red berries.
