    Chocolate Layer Cake
    Ingredients
    12 oz / 1 ½ cup / 340 g butter, softened
    12 oz / 1 ½ cup / 340 g sugar
    6 eggs
    12 oz / 2 ½ cup / 340 g flour
    4 oz / ca. 3/4 cup / 120 g finely ground almonds
    6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 teaspoons baking powder
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract
    ½ cup boiling water

    Ingredients for frosting
    6 tablespoons / 3 oz / 80 g butter
    7 oz / 200 g semisweet dark chocolate (40-45% cocoa)
    2 egg (salmonella-free)
    7 oz / 200 g icing sugar


    Method
    1. Preheat oven to 180 deg C / 350 deg F / Gas mark 4.
    2. Line two 9 inch / 23 cm cake tins with greaseproof or other non-stick paper and grease the tins.
    3. Beat the softened butter with sugar
    4. Add one egg at a time, mix well between each egg.
    5. Mix with flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, vanilla extract, and finely ground almonds.
    6. Add ½ cup of boiling water and mix well.
    7. Transfer to two separate cake tins and bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in centre comes out clean.
    8. Cool the cakes and cut each in half, horizontally.

    Frosting
    1. Melt butter and chopped chocolate in a double boiler.
    2. Beat the eggs with icing sugar and mix with the chocolate and butter mixture.
    3. Use two thirds of the frosting to sandwich the four layers together and coat the cake with the remainder of the frosting.
    4. Cool the cake in the fridge to harden the frosting. Place the cake at room temperature 1-2 hours before it is served.

    Variations
    A) You may substitute the boiling water with hot coffee.
    B) If you want a smaller cake use half the amount of each ingredient and one cake tin. Make then only two layers.
    C) For the frosting you must use an egg without salmonella risk. If this is not available, please use a different chocolate frosting.

    This cake is approximately 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall.
