Carob Chocolate Cake

unnamed1

Healthy and super delicious

I don’t know how about you, but I really like carob. It’s very healthy and the ripe, dried pod is often ground to carob powder, which is used to replace cocoa powder, so it’s perfect for healthy cookies and cakes.

And if you want to eat delicious flavors rich cake, you have to try this recipe! 😉

It’s very simple, easy and fast to make it!

Recipe:

Cake:

125 g dark chocolate (70% cocoa)

1/2 cup of water

2 tablespoons honey

3 eggs

3/4 cup brown sugar

125 g yogurt

1/4 cup vegetable oil

1 and 1/2 cup of plain flour

3 tablespoons carob

1 teaspoon baking powder

Ganache frosting:

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 3/4 cup heavy cream

1/4 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

680 g dark Chocolate

 

Procedure:

Grease a bundt with butter and sprinkle with flour

Preheat the oven to 180ºC

In a pan put the chocolate into small pieces, water and honey and bring to the boil until melted and homogeneous

In a bowl beat the eggs well with the sugar until you get a smooth mixture

Add the yogurt and oil and stir well

Add the chocolate mixture to the dough, stirring constantly

Gradually add the flour and baking powder, and beat the dough very well until smooth

Put in the prepared pan and bake for cca 30 min

Ganache frosting:

Combine granulated sugar, heavy cream and butter in a small saucepan over low heat until butter is melted

Place chocolate in a medium sized bowl and pour cream mixture over the top

Allow mixture to sit for 5 minutes and then stir until smooth

Allow ganache to cool for 1-2 hours until desired consistency is reach to frost the cake. (Watch ganache closely as it will eventually harden like chocolate. Ganache can always be remelted over the top of a double boiler if this occurs.)

Pour over cake
