10 min.

Set aside.

Stage 10
Moist chocolate cake : Photo of step #10 You can also make little individual cakes.
Stage 11
40 min.
Moist chocolate cake : Photo of step #11 Bake for about 40 minutes, turn out and leave to cool on a wire rack.
Stage 12
Moist chocolate cake : Photo of step #12 If you have opted for small cakes, the cooking time will be much shorter.
Stage 13
Moist chocolate cake : Photo of step #13 Look at the lovely split along the top of this cake, the result of "slashing" the top just before it went in the oven.

Remarks

Once the cake batter is made, it can be kept cold until needed. The best way to do this is to pour it into its tin or mould and refrigerate.

You can enrich this cake with lots of other ingredients: dried fruit, toasted nuts, apples or pears - let your imagination lead the way!
