Chocolate Caramel Pudding Cake


This is for sure one chocolate cake that is supposed to still be a bit runny in the middle when serving, maybe with a dollop of whipped cream on top, so be sure and avoid overcooking (the toothpick test won't work here in other words). That's due to the high proportion of wet ingredients (eggs, butter, and cream) to the dry ingredients (flour and cocoa powder), with egg whites as the only leavener.  


  • 4 eggs
  • 300 grams sugar
  • 125 grams butter (melted)
  • 125 grams cocoa powder
  • 300 grams flour
  • 200 milliliters cream
