Categories: Cakes

Submitted by: Mani Niall

Deep, dark, light textured and very chocolatey. Not too sweet, perfect for swirling with dulce de leche. Add a scoop of ice cream for total decadence.


  • 2/3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 c. Clabber Girl Cornstarch
  • 3/4 tsp. Clabber Girl Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 12 tbsp. butter unsalted and room temperature
  • 1 1/3 c. sugar
  • 2 lg. eggs
  • 4 oz. unsweetened chocolate melted and cooled slightly
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 3/4 c. milk


Preheat the oven to 350 F. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan.

Sift together the flour, Clabber Girl Corn Starch, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, baking soda and salt.
Set aside. Cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time until smooth, then add melted chocolate and vanilla. Add the sifted flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the milk in 2 parts, beginning and ending with the flour.

Pour into the prepared pan, smooth the batter and bake in the middle of the oven. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the center feels firm to the touch.
Cool, release from pan, spread with dulce de leche and serve.
