How To Make A Chocolate Mint Cake


  • Sugar 150 g
  • Mint 20 g
  • Dark chocolate 100 g
  • 6 eggs
  • Butter 100 g
  • Icing sugar 100 g
  • Peppermint extract 2 drops
  • Double cream 200 ml
  • Vegetable oil

Cooking Instructions

  1. First, make the caramel. Place 100 g of sugar into the pan. Flavor the caramel with a bit of chopped mint.
  2. Do not get the caramel too dark. Drizzle a teaspoon of oil onto the tray, spread the oil. Then, pour out the caramel. Set the caramel aside to cool down.
  3. Melt good quality chocolate in the bowl over the boiling water. Then, melt 100 g butter in the chocolate and stir.
  4. Place sugar, 2 whole eggs and 3 egg yolks into the mixing bowl. Whisk until light and creamy. Add chocolate to egg-sugar mix.
  5. Separate 4 egg whites into the bowl. Whisk. Add 50 g of sugar. Whisk again. Add whites to the chocolate.
  6. Break the caramel. Sprinkle ¾ of the caramel into the chocolate. Mix.
  7. Take a cake tin. Make sure it is greased properly. Pour the chocolate mixture into the tin. Place the cake into the oven at 180 degrees for 35 minutes.
  8. Now, for the topping. Sift icing sugar. Add 2 drops of peppermint extract to double cream, then, add sugar. Give that really good whisk.
  9. Spoon minty cream onto the cake. Decorate with left caramel. Cook this recipe with a photo!
