Method

Lady Goldenglow Chocolate Cake is a community recipe submitted by Mariavil and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

Batter:

  • Mix eggs and sugar fluffy, add melted butter, milk and zest.
  • Then sift in the dry ingredients. Amounts fit in a 18 or 20 cm spring form.
  • In oven for about 40 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean, 180 degrees Celsius (approx. 350F)
  • When cake is done and cooled, divide in two horizontally (use a bread knife or so) and put nearly half of the filling on the bottom half.
  • Put on the other half and smear the rest of the filling on top and the sides. (If you think its difficult to divide the cake, feel free to bake it in two separate tins instead.) A little piece of heaven.
