Chocolate Cake with Thermomix

You must try this chocolate cake! No, not the usual chocolate cake, it is a special one!

In Italy, for Easter, we use to give as a present big eggs made with chocolate. As a #mumofseven, you can imagine that we receive lots lots lots chocolate eggs. Sometimes so many that we can't eat all of them ...

We do love chocolate, but if it is too much, it's not a pleasure. Don't you agree?

So, once, I thought to use the chocolate of these Easter Eggs to cook a chocolate cake with my Thermi.  I was soooo happy about the result! And my dears too...

When I first offered my aunt a slice of this chocolate cake she said: "no, noo I must hurry because I have to go to school". Then she had a better look at the cake and told me "well, just a little piece because you made it". At least she asked for a second slice! A great satisfaction, isn't it?

In the Italian version I used Zabov or Vov. Those are Italian liquors made with eggs. But I know that it is not easy to find them outside Italy. So, for all my non Italian friends, I used Baileys.

But when you come in Italy, you must try Zabov or Vov. So, it's up to you: or you can buy Zabov or Vov with Amazon or you can use Baileys.

And if you choose Baileys... why don't you try to make your own Baileys with my Thermi recipe?
