Chocolate cake recipe from my French granny

Chocolate cake recipe from my French granny

My granny created the best chocolate cake in the history of human kind. I'm not trying to brag, this is a fact.

I decided to put it out here to have a place to go when I'm looking for her recipe inside a 50 kilos drawer where I put my to-sort-later papers.

This is a tribute to good taste, you're welcome.



  • 90 grams of flour + half a bag of yeast
  • 150 grams of sugar + a pince of salt
  • 90 grams of half-salt butter (we don't use soft butter, we are not tasteless savages)
  • 120 grams of dark chocolate
  • 3 eggs
  • One bag of Bitecones to decorate


Step 1 - Blanch the sugar and egg yolks

Step 2 - Add melted butter

Step 3 - Add flour and the melted chocolate

Step 4 -  Beat the egg whites into a firm peak with a pinch of salt and add them to the mix.

Baking : 30 minutes between 150°C and 180°C depending of your oven
