Chocolate Cake/巧克力蛋糕

IMG_3532

I had never liked chocolate cake, but a few days ago I saw a recipe online by someone name Shinee from Sweet & Savory, the cake looked so delicious, too delicious that I couldn’t wait any longer to make it today. Here is the cake I made, it is really moist and soft, even someone like me enjoyed it so much! The only change I will make to this recipe will be cut some of the sugar if you’re Chinese who doesn’t like really sweet food. I strongly recommend it to chocolate lovers!

我 從不喜歡巧克力蛋糕,但幾天前看到了有个叫Shinee的人的蛋糕看起來很可口,美味,我今天迫不及待的做了。這裡是我做的蛋糕,真的是又濕潤又柔軟,即使像我這樣的人也吃的津津有味 !如果你是中國人的话建议少放些糖。我这次只放了一杯糖,还是觉的太甜。 我強烈推薦它給巧克力愛好者 !

5.將麵糊倒入兩個蛋糕盤。烤大約 30-35 分鐘,或直到插入的牙籤出來乾淨。在架子上冷卻 10 分鐘。然後从烤盘中拿出至蛋糕完全冷卻。

6.與此同時,讓我們準備巧克力慕斯餡。在一隻小碗,溶解可哥粉和即溶濃咖啡粉在熱水裡。

7.在一個隔水鍋中,融化巧克力直到匀稠。關火,稍微冷卻。

10.到时候組裝蛋糕时,把每个蛋糕切成兩個平等的片。如果你的蛋糕有小駝峰,把凸起的切掉。

11.將第一片的蛋糕層上放入约 1/4 的的慕斯。然後放蛋糕的下一層,继续放慕斯,直到把蛋糕砌起来。蛋糕放冰箱冷藏至少 2 小時或隔夜。

12.一旦蛋糕冷卻,放巧克力在一個小鍋裡,把奶油烧到冒小泡,注意不要燒開。熱奶油倒入巧克力混合。然後混勻直至表面光滑。拌入黃油來添加一些亮度。

13.当朱古力浆还没凝固时倒蛋糕上抹平,如果你想要光滑釉你可以讓它冷卻一点后再像糖浆一样涂上去。
