Espresso – an Italian invention between Swiss railway tracks and La Dolce Vita
Did you know that espresso was invented in the course of industrialisation and because of the railway? Since there was little time to change trains between two connections, it was invented: the espresso – coffee that can be drunk quickly.
Baking recipe for chocolate fans: chocolate cake “Nathalie” inspired by Trish Desine
For 6-8 people
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Baking time: 22 minutes
The cake can be eaten immediately after cooling, but is also delicious if baked the day before.
200g dark chocolate – best quality (I always use “Cru Sauvage” from Sprüngli)
5 fresh eggs (room temperature)
1 tablespoon flour
Preheat the oven to 190 degrees bottom/upper heat.
Melt the chocolate and butter together in the microwave or in a bain-marie. [I always do this in a bain-marie.] Add the sugar, stir well and leave to cool slightly. Stirring with a wooden spoon, add the eggs one by one, stirring thoroughly after each egg so that it is well combined with the mixture.
Finally, add the flour and stir until smooth. Pour the batter into a 20 cm diameter springform pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 22 minutes. The cake should still give slightly in the middle when pressed with your finger. Remove from the oven, immediately remove from the tin and leave to cool.
