Chocolate cake is a kind of cake mainly made of chocolate, eggs and flour. It is common in birthday parties and weddings and is one of the common desserts. It has a wide variety and is suitable for people of all ages.

Chocolate cake originated in Mexico. Chocolate, which is popular in Western countries, has always been regarded as "happiness food". According to research by the American Dietetic Association, chocolate contains polyphenols, which are also found in fruits, vegetables, and tea, and have many benefits to human health.

Here's how to make the chocolate cake:

Ingredients: 130g butter, 65g dark chocolate, 110g egg, 60g flour, 120g sugar.

1. Cut the butter into small pieces and heat to soften, add sugar;

2. Mix the butter and sugar and beat until it becomes milky white and slightly yellowish;

3. Crack two eggs into a bowl, then add the beaten butter in about 5~6 batches, stirring well each time. It should be emphasized here that the egg liquid must be fully stirred in stages, otherwise oil-water separation will occur. If there is oil-water separation, you can add some prepared flour as appropriate;

4. Melt the chocolate, add butter and stir well, add flour and stir well;

5. Start preheating the oven at 180 degrees, then lay high-temperature oil paper in the mold, stir the chocolate paste, pour it into the mold, use a scraper to wipe the surface evenly, and then it can be put into the oven;

6. Bake the fire up and down at 180 degrees for 25 minutes, then the chocolate cake can be baked. At the end, you can add some frosting on the surface, which is beautiful and delicious.


1. The key to this cake is the baking temperature and time. It is necessary to use high temperature and fast baking to achieve the effect of setting the outer cake tissue. If you bake it for too long, the cake will become hard. If the baking time is not enough, the outer tissue is not strong enough, and the cake may be soft after baking.

2. This cake should be eaten hot, the taste will be reduced after cooling. If you don't eat it immediately after it comes out of the oven, you can microwave it for ten seconds before eating it next time.

Eating chocolate cake can help improve your mood on a chemical level. It's not just simply about how happy you feel after eating chocolate, it's also about the chemical effects it achieves at the brain level.

As research shows, this food contains tyrosine, a precursor to the production of dopamine, the neurotransmitter responsible for making us feel happy. That said, in addition to its deliciousness, cocoa itself has the ability to bring us smiles on a chemical level.

Helps improve memory and brain activity. Many studies have shown that the flavanols contained in chocolate are very powerful, because it is because of their presence that this food also improves the health of our brains.

This happens when these antioxidants are absorbed and penetrate into areas involved in the learning process and memory, such as the hippocampus.

There, they act as protectors, improving blood flow in the area, helping brain activity and slowing the aging of our minds.
