  1. Break the eggs into a bowl, add the sugar and mix everything with an electric whisk until it is light and fluffy.
  2. Add the butter in 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 has blended, it's the milk 's turn, always pouring in slowly.
  4. Then continue, in order, with the sifted flour , cocoa and yeast .
  5. Once you have obtained a homogeneous dough, pour it into a 24-26 cm diameter mold , lined with baking paper or buttered and floured.
  6. Cook the cake at 160°C for 40 minutes , testing with a toothpick before taking it out of the oven. Inserted into the center of the cake it must come out completely dry. If not, continue cooking for another 5 minutes and repeat the test.
  7. Serve it once it has cooled completely, finishing with a sprinkling of icing sugar if desired.

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.
