Gateau au chocolat

In our everyday lives we often forget what it feels like to do something you really care about.
I realized that I  really have to make an effort to find time for my hobbies and just enjoy doing them without looking at my phone or into a schoolbook.

During my final exams at school I always baked a lot and afterwards I took it with me to school or I would invite friends over to just give them a taste of this pure relaxing happiness. Everybody always asked me how I could find time to bake so often even when we had to learn every day....  
I think you should always find time for things that matter to you and especially if it is not only making you happy but also other people too. I just can't describe this amazing feeling I get when somebody really enjoys the food I made. It is like double happiness.

So if you enjoy drawing, baking, cooking or of course blogging you should always take your time for it as there will certainly be people out there who really love you for who you are and what you do and not only for which score you got on the latest test or exam.

From time to time I really get huge cravings for chocolate! Sadly, I am not a person that likes to eat chocolate bars just like that. It has to be either Nutella on a piece of bread or a cake, brownie or cupcake to satisfy me completely ;).
I have to tell you guys that I am a huge fan of French baking. I found this amazing recipe for a "gateau au chocolat" on a website that is named !
Once I found this website I was baking tons of their recipes and non of them ever disappointed me.


What you need:

200 g dark chocolate
4 eggs
100g flour
140 sugar
a half pack of baking powder
a pack of vanilla sugar
one glass of milk
140g butter


1. Heat up your oven on 170°C
2. Mix the eggs and sugar until it becomes a white mousse.
3. Then add flour and the baking powder by slowly mixing it under the white mousse.
4. Melt the chocolate in bowl on top of a pot full of hot water. When the chocolate is melted add milk      
    and butter.
5. Mix it under the dough.
6. Finally put it all into a round baking form and let it bake for 25-30 minutes. Peak in with a knife
    and see if the dough is already done.

Have fun baking and enjoy the cake :)!
