Cream-free Moist & Rich Gateau au Chocolat
This is my first plain gateau chocolat after several trials. I tried with milk chocolate or reduced the amount of sugar...This is quite similar to my green tea gateau chocolat. I like these recipes.
Milk chocolate is too sweet for this recipe so use dark chocolate.
If you double the quantities you can make a 18-cm round cake but remember it will take about 60 minutes to bake.
If you whip the meringue too stiff the resultant cake might rise too much.
I recommend you chill overnight and serve the following day! For a 12 cm [4.7 in] round cake tin (for an 18-cm cake, double the quantities). Recipe by Hamumaki
