The popular Tuscan chocolate cake in a version for basic kitchen equipment: blender, cup and sense of proportion.  If your measurements and blender velocity slightly differ from the below indicated, it’s not a big problem. The chocolate cake generously doesn’t mind it.

Tuscan chocolate cake

200g chocolate
200g butter
3/4 cups flour
1 cup sugar
5-6 eggs, depending on the size

Preheat the oven to 180°C and butter a 26cm baking form ( or 2 smaller baking forms). Cut butter and chocolate in small pieces and melt them in a sauce pan, constantly stirring until smooth. Set aside for about 5 minutes.
Fill sugar and eggs into your blender. Select slowest speed (Vitamix Variable 1), then quickly increase speed (Vitamix Variable 4 0r 5). Blend for 15 seconds, until the egg/sugar mixture is creamy. Add flour.  Blend for 5-10 seconds until mixed in. Turn blender on slow and pour in the chocolate butter. Blend until the batter is evenly incorporated. (Vitamix: if necessary use the tamper to press ingredients into the blades.)

Pour into prepared baking form.and bake for about 20-30 minutes. The top should be slightly crackled and the center still creamy. Let the cake cool completely before cutting. Enjoy!

  1. Beautiful photos! This chocolate cake seems very easy to do and it looks great. Did you use dark chocolate? I prefer dark but the rest of my family prefer milk chocolate…

      Hi Eva, I use 70% dark chocolate, 85% works well too. I promise you, with all the butter and sugar and eggs in it, your family won’t miss the milk chocolate. Just give it a try!
