Make it

chocolate cake without butter 2

  • Preheat the oven to 300 F
  • Put a medium size mixing bowl in the fridge for few minutes, along with the hand’s mixer whisks. If you are using a Kitchen Aid stand mixer, make sure to put the bowl in the fridge too.
  • In the mean, with your hand mixer on high, beat the egg yolks with the sugar until it is creamy
  • Add the flour. Make sure to use a wooden spatula to mix well.
  • Sperate eggs: yolk and white
  • Remove the mixing bowl from the fridge and beat the egg whites with the pinch of salt.
  • With your hand mixer set on high, beat the whites until they double in volume and become firm.
  • Slowly add the egg whites to the rest of the mixture. You will need to use your wooden spatula. It is a delicate process.
  • Scrape the butter in the pan
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until golden.
  • Let it cool
  • Remove the cake from the pan into a rack
  • Top with chocolate spread
  • Decorate with coconut

I like that it is fluffy and light. You can add whipped cream on top, glaze it. The possibilities are endless with genoise, depending on the occasion.
