One Pot Chocolate Cake

One Pot Chocolate Cake
It's been already 14 years since it was published here for the first time this boiled cake or casserole cake, as is often said. It saw the light under the title: "Chocolate Cake, Juicy" and excited those who they enjoyed the 1st book of the Kitchen Stories «Desserts».
Today we suggest another similar version of the same cake, reinforced with some modifications/improvements through the experience and knowledge of so many years, with the addition of strong coffee in its highly chocolate syrup from the presence of cocoa and roasted hazelnut in serving, which is so perfectly combined with chocolate. It became an incredibly fluffy & juicy chocolate cake -a foam cake- perfectly soaked with cocoa syrup, similar to the previous you so loved!
Follow the detailed steps of preparing it and discover the little secrets that distinguish it from the package of similar proposals.
