When i was teenager i was a student to a high school. Then it was when i discovered this wonderful cake. I loved it!!!! You could find it everywhere. But i finish the school and i lost the cake for over 20 years. When i found the recipe i was soo happy. I was dreaming about this cake. And it's so easy to make!!! I had to make it right away. And i make it every once in a while since. I think i'll never get enough of it.
8 eggs
8 tablespoon sugar
4 tablespoon flour
4 tablespoon cacao

chocolate frosting:
8oz chocolate
1 cup whipping cream

1 cup water
8 tablespoon sugar

2 cups whipping cream

Separate the eggs. Beat egg yolks and  sugar until light and creamy, about 4 minutes; set aside. Beat egg whites on medium-high speed until soft peaks form. Fold egg-white mixture into egg-yolk mixture in 2 additions, then fold in flour and cocoa. Do not overmix. Line the oven baking pan with parchment paper; pour the batter in. Bake it at 350F until a tester inserted in the middle of the cake come out clean. Take it out of the pan, remove the paper and let it cool of.
While the cake is in the oven, prepare the syrup: bring to a boil the water and the sugar, boil it for about 10 minutes. Let it cool. Add 1-2 spoons of rum, for flavor. When both cake and syrup are cold, pour the syrup over the cake. Cut the cake in squares.
Warm up the whipping cream (don't boil it!!) and add the chocolate. Stir well. let it cool of for a few minutes and pour it over the cake.
Beat the whipping cream on high speed until it holds it's shape, transfer it to a pastry bag and pipe it in top of each square.
Enjoy it!!!
