How to Make Egyptian Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Sift together: flour, baking powder, cinnamon & cloves together. Set aside.
  • 2Over low heat, melt chocolate in coffee in small saucepan; stir frequently to avoid burning chocolate.

    Once combined, remove from heat, and allow to cool to room temperature.
  • 3Using an electric mixer on MEDIUM speed, cream butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl, until light and fluffy.
  • 4Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

    Add cooled chocolate/coffee mixture and continue to beat.
  • 5Add dry ingredients alternately with milk to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • 6Pour batter into 2 greased and waxed paper-lined 8-inch cake pans.
  • 7Bake in a preheated 350 oven for 30 minutes or until cake tests done; cool in pans on racks for 10 minutes.
  • 8Remove from pans; cool completely on racks.
  • 9To assemble the cake, place one cake layer on serving plate; spread with Cinnamon Whipped Cream and top with second cake layer.
  • 10Frost sides and top with remaining Cinnamon Whipped Cream; refrigerate until serving time.
  • 11CINNAMON WHIPPED CREAM: Chill large mixing bowl and beaters.
  • 12Combine cream, sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon and beat with an electric mixer set at high speed until soft peaks form and mixture is thick enough to spread; DO NOT overbeat or you will have butter instead of whipped cream.
