How to prepare the black cloud cake recipe

  1. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the sugar and mix everything with an electric mixer until it is light and fluffy.
  2. Add the butter cut into pieces after keeping it at room temperature for a couple of hours. It should have the consistency of an ointment.
  3. When the previous ingredient is blended, it's the turn of the milk , to be poured slowly.
  4. Then continue, in order, with the sifted flour , cocoa and baking powder .
  5. Once you have obtained a homogeneous mixture, pour it into a mold of 24-26 cm in diameter , lined with parchment paper or greased and floured.
  6. Bake the cake at 160°C for 40 minutes , doing the toothpick test before taking it out of the oven. Inserted in the center of the cake, it must come out completely dry. If not, continue cooking for another 5 minutes and repeat the check.
  7. Serve it once it has cooled completely, completing it to taste with a sprinkling of icing sugar.

You can also prepare the gluten-free black cloud cake by replacing the flour with potato starch (or a gluten-free mix for desserts) in equal quantities. It is also possible to make the black cloud cake without butter by combining 140 g of seed oil. In both cases you will get an excellent dessert.
