Rich and chocolatey yet airy and light, this mocha cake is a marvel to make and to eat. Bittersweet cocoa powder and melted dark chocolate flavors the batter, which is made by first creaming softened butter and sugar. The key to creating its lofty texture is to fold well-beaten egg whites into the batter just until combined, and just before baking, else they lose their lifting power.

Ingredients

  • 150 grams butter
  • 180 grams sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 50 grams potato starch
  • 50 grams almond flour
  • 50 grams all purpose flour
  • 50 grams cocoa (bittersweet, powdered)
  • 100 grams dark chocolate
  • 3 ounces espresso
  • salt
  • bitter almond extract

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  2. Beat the egg whites to stiff peaks with a pinch of salt.
  3. Combine the potato starch with the flour, almond flour and bittersweet cocoa.
  4. Melt the dark chocolate over a double boiler.
  5. Cream the butter with the sugar.
  6. Add the 3 egg yolks, then add the dry ingredients, the melted chocolate, the coffee, and the almond extract.
  7. Use a wooden spoon to fold the beaten egg whites into the mixture.
  8. Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  9. Cool the cake completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
