Apple Chocolate Cake



Yum - a great combination of chocolate, orange and apple! This is a really quick cake to put together. The recipe makes two cakes (or one, huge cake) and they freeze very well. Just like the Apple Cake with Almonds, this is from Claes Karlsson's book "Mer än bara äppelkaka". Although he said this would make *one* cake.. well, I found the yield off in his other recipe too.

Apple Chocolate Cake

4 eggs
250 ml (1 cup) of sugar
60 g butter
50 ml single cream or half and half
250 ml (1 cup) of flour
50 ml (3 tbsp + 1 tsp) cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking powder
shredded peel from one orange
3-4 apples, peeled and diced
1 tbsp cinnamon, optional

Preheat oven to 190°C. Beat eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Melt the butter, and mix with the single cream. Stir this into the eggs and sugar. Add flour, cocoa powder, orange peel and baking powder. Pour into two buttered 9-inch springform pans (or one giant pan). Mix the apples, if you wish, with cinnamon, and sprinkle on top of the cake. Bake for 30 minutes.
