The recipe is an old family recipe, like the classic brownie recipe,very easy to prepare, in a short time and successful . You can glaze it with melted chocolate or your favorite topping. It was delicious! I'll give the measurements in grams and cups. You will get two cakes in small forms or 1 large loaf (long form).
Serves: 8
  • 4 eggs
  • 100 ml of milk
  • 360 grams sugar (2 cups graduated 250)
  • Margarine 250 gr
  • 50 gr cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 260 g flour (1 cup and ¾)
  1. In a stainless steel pot put together the margarine, sugar and milk and warm them up. When margarine is melted and sugar is dissolved,take the saucepan from the heat and add cocoa (sifted) and blend it with a whisk. Allow mixture to cool before adding the eggs and flour. To cool quickly, you can put the pan in the sink partially filled with cold water and continuously stir with a whisk in composition. The whole thing should take no longer than 10 minutes!
  2. The next step is to separate the whites from the yolks. Beat egg whites hard and refrigerate them.
  3. When the mixture has cooled (finger temperature) put it in a larger bowl and add one yolk at the time. Homogenize by mixing well after each addition.
  4. Add flour mixed with baking powder and finally whisk in the egg whites from bottom to top.
  5. Prepare two loaf pans with parchment paper and pour half of the batter in each one.
  6. Bake in preheated oven at 200 (400F) degrees for the first 15 minutes, then reduce temperature to 160 degrees(360). First on high heat then simmer).
  7. Allow to cool and glaze with chocolate or chocolate topping.
