Coconut and soft chocolate cake recipe – baking time
Bake in a preheated static oven at 180 ° C for 15 – 20 minutes. To be sure if the cake is ready perform the toothpick test. Once the chocolate cake is ready, remove from the oven and let it cool completely. As soon as it gets cold, prick the surface with a fork or toothpick and prepare the glaze.
Preparation of the dark chocolate glaze
In a small saucepan, heat 160 ml of cream with 30 g of butter until it boils. Turn off the heat and add 110 g of chopped dark or milk chocolate. Wait 2 minutes then stir vigorously to create a smooth and shiny glaze. Pour this cream over the prepared cake and level it. Now add the coconut to your liking.
Since we like dessicated coconut a lot, as you can see from the photos I put a generous layer to completely cover the cake.
For those who want to make it just as sweet but prefer not to use dark chocolate glaze, I recommend creating a simple powdered sugar glaze made with and a drop of lemon juice or water. Then cover it with the coconut on top as the glaze is still liquid and not firm.
You can cut the cake directly into the pan and serve it when needed. This makes the cake easy to move and divide on special occasions. Furthermore, serving it directly from the pan you will not spread the coconut everywhere ^_^.
You can keep it at room temperature covered with a cotton cloth.
lot of love. B.
