Mascarpone chocolate cake - recipe (including photos)

  • 250 grams of mascarpone
  • 100 grams of fresh cream plus 1 additional spoon for the glaze
  • 50 grams of white chocolate
  • 50 grams of dark chocolate
  • 40 grams of butter
  • 2 spoons of sunflower oil
  • 4 spoons of flour
  • 10 spoons of sugar (more if needed) 
  • 2 packets of vanilla sugar
  • 2-3 spoons of cocoa powder
  • 3 entire eggs and 3 additional egg yolks
  • 3 spoons of milk

Start with the 3 eggs that will be used in full:
- beat the egg yolks with the sunflower oil
- beat the egg whites with 4 spoons of sugar
- mix well the two compositions from above.

Add the flour and mix slowly.

Add the cocoa powder and mix well.
Put the dough in the oven at medium fire for 20-25 minutes.

Mix the additional three egg yolks with the vanilla sugar and 4 spoons of sugar.

Add the milk and mix them at bain-marie until creamy.

Add the white chocolate and mix until melted.

Let it cool.

 Separately mix the mascarpone with the cream.

Add the egg yolk mixture on top and mix until well incorporated.

Add the mascarpone cream over the baked sponge cake.

Mix the dark chocolate with the last 2 spoons of sugar, the butter and 1 spoon of fresh cream.

Let it cool a little, but while it's still liquid spread it evenly over the cream and then put it in the fridge for about 1 hour before serving (this way the chocolate will form a nice crust on top).
