Cocoa Powder Cake: Black Cloud with Thermomix

Cocoa Powder Cake: Black Cloud with Thermomix

The Cocoa powder Cake or "Black Cloud"is a delicious recipe to prepare when you feel like eating a cocoa treat.

I like it very much because it is an extremely easy cake with an enormously soft consistency...that is where its name derives! I think a cake is perfect when it is light and soft and not "heavy" you can't even digest it!

This cocoa cake is really good in every moment, especially during your afternoon snack but what I've noticed is that this cake is just irresistible...I was so tempted by it was all finished up in a couple of hours! :-)

Last time my greedy daughters had a quarter of it while it was still hot. I and my husband tasted it with eyes closed...we were almost dreaming about being surrounded by chocolate! All of this thanks to my Thermomix!

If you also are "chocoholic" like me I suggest you try the Chocolate Souffle, the Chocolate Liqueur, the Profiteroles or the classic Hot Chocolate, also the Milk-Free Hot Chocolate.

If you are looking for chocolate cake you have plenty of choice: Caprese Cake, Chocolate and Whipping Cream Cake, the very good Chocolate Cake with Easter Eggs, the Soft Chocolate Cake.
