Servings 9 inch Cake


  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons vanilla sugar or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • pinch salt

For serving:

  • Powdered sugar
  • Whipped cream


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and grease a 9 inch springform pan with butter. Dust with flour.
  • In a large bowl, stir together butter, sugar, and eggs by hand, not with an electric mixer. Once combined, mix in cocoa powder, vanilla sugar, flour, and salt. Pour into the prepared springform pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven until the top begins to harden and crack, about 25 minutes. The interior should still be moist and sticky.
  • Allow to cool in pan and serve with powdered sugar and whipped cream.
