Chocolate Dessert Cake

This is a chocolate lover’s dream, rich warm chocolate cake, served with a decedent hot chocolate sauce. Great for camping trips when you aren’t tracking calories.

The recipe can be baked in a camp oven, or in a Dutch oven, both work equally well.

The leftovers taste pretty amazing too, but how can you go wrong with chocolate really?

Ingredients

Chocolate Cake

200g butter

200g self raising (self rising) flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 eggs

3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons hot water

100g dark chocolate

Chocolate Sauce

100g dark chocolate

100g icing sugar (confectioners sugar)

100g butter

4 tablespoons (80ml) milk

Equipment

10 inch cake tin or Dutch oven

pot

Recipe Directions

  1. Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, this may take a while.

  2. Stir the flour and baking powder into the creamed mixture.

  3. Add the eggs and combine well until smooth.

  4. Combine the cocoa and boiling water to create a smooth slurry, then add to the mixture. Stir well to get a consistent chocolate color.

  5. Stir in the dark chocolate either as buds or if bought as a block, broken small pieces.

  6. Preheat the Dutch oven, or camp oven to 180 degrees C (355 degrees F).

  7. Grease or line with parchment paper the Dutch oven or a cake tin then add the cake batter.

  8. Bake the cake for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through.

  9. In a bowl placed over a simmering pot of water add the dark chocolate, icing sugar, butter and milk. Continue to heat and stir until the butter and chocolate have melted and everything is well combined.

  10. Cut the still warm cake in to portion serves then drizzle with the hot chocolate sauce.

    Warning: This is a very chocolaty and sweet dessert so you don’t need very large portion sizes, and it may be good to accompany with some cream or similar to pull back the sweetness a little.
