How to make the unforgettable Matilda chocolate cake step by step
Development. Starting with the biscuit, the first thing to do is put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat until smooth. Then add 2 eggs and repeat the procedure until a homogeneous mixture is obtained.
In parallel, put the bitter cocoa powder and hot water into another bowl and beat. Once both ingredients are mixed, also add semi-sweet chocolate (to be melted), milk cream and yogurt.
Finally, combine both preparations and, once they are combined, also add the flour, bicarbonate of soda and a pinch of salt, using a sieve and stirring constantly to prevent lumps from forming.
Then divide into 3 portions and bake so that you get 3 short biscuits (this will facilitate the final assembly of the cake).
At this stage, it is important to know that the molds should be oiled and floured (you can use cocoa powder to make the cake even more like Matilda) or covered with parchment paper.
As for the oven, it must be preheated to 180°C and baked for 15-20 minutes (just insert a toothpick into the center of the cookies and see if they come out clean and dry).
This time can be used to prepare the filling for the cake, consisting of caramel and chocolate ganache. To begin with, you need to pour sugar into the pan and put on fire until caramel forms.
Once that is achieved, remove from it, add the milk cream (which should be hot) and return to heat to integrate. Once combined, pour half of the mixture into the bowl of chopped chocolate, whisk and wait for it to melt.
Next, add the rest, also add the butter and mix until a homogeneous paste is obtained. Finally, let cool and refrigerate to get the consistency.
When everything is ready, it remains only to start assembling the cake. To do this, put a biscuit on the base, apply a little ganache, put another biscuit in the middle, add more fillings, top with the last piece of dough and, finally, cover the top and sides with chocolate, a lot of chocolate.
