hi this is my first instructable so i thought why not try to win something for once. this is a very delicious cake if you eat it right. ^^
Step 1: Ingredients
ok so for ingredients you'll need:
baking powder/soda 1tsp (each)
cocoa powder 100g
vanilla essence 1tsp
1 tub of mascarpone cheese
1 bottle of double cream
Step 2: Mix Wet Ingredients
ok so i should of mentioned but i forgot to take pictures at point
anyway in a bowl add your butter, eggs, vanilla essence and oil
mix with a whisk or electric beater
Step 3: Combine Dry Ingredients
next add your flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder and soda and sugar.
make sure its all sifted
mix with whisk or spoon and until it has combined.
Step 4: Combine Wet and Dry Mix
first use your spoon to make a well or hole in your dry mixture.
then slowly add your wet mix inside
finally beat with electric beater until fully combined and smells/looks chocolatly
pour into a greased tin with parchment paper
Step 5: Cooked
cook to 350 farenheit/ celcius until cooked
poke with a toothpick if it comes out clean its cooked
the amount of baking powder and soda might be small but they help raise the cake as they are both chemical leavening agents that cause batters to rise when baked. The leavener enlarges the bubbles which are already present in the which forces the cake to rise. But baking powder does most of the leavening. Baking soda does some of the leavening but it also adds tenderness to the cake.
Too much baking powder can cause the batter to be bitter tasting. It can also cause the batter to riserapidly and then collapse. (i.e. The air bubbles in the batter grow too large and break causing the batter to fall.)
Step 6: Cream
add in a bowl mascarpone sugar and double cream
mix for about 3 minutes or until it turns to cream and becomes stiff peaks
Step 7: Finish
add cream and pipe in any way you want
you are finished its better to put in fridge for about an hour as it taste better
