How to make Easy Chocolate Easter Cake

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (180°C). Grease an 8-inch (20cm) pan with butter and line it with parchment paper for easy removal of the cake later.

Next, melt the chocolate and butter together using a bain-marie until smooth. Allow the mixture to cool to room temperature.

While the chocolate mixture is cooling, beat the eggs with sugar and salt using a whisk or mixer until they become thick and turn a light yellow color. Mix in the vanilla extract.

Once the chocolate mixture has cooled, add it to the egg mixture and mix until well combined.

Using a spatula, gently fold in the sifted flour until fully incorporated. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake the cake in the preheated oven for about 25 minutes, or until it is set. To check for doneness, insert a toothpick into the center of the cake. If it comes out clean or with a few crumbs clinging to it, the cake is done.

Once baked, run a sharp knife completely around the inside edge of the pan to loosen the cake. Let it cool for 10 minutes, then carefully invert it onto a serving plate and allow it to cool completely.

While the cake is cooling, prepare the cream cheese frosting. In a separate mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Once the cake has cooled completely, spread the cream cheese frosting evenly over the top of the cake.

Finally, decorate the cake with chocolate eggs of different sizes and colors for a festive touch. Then, slice and serve, and enjoy your delicious Easter chocolate cake. If you try it out, make sure to share the photos with me on Instagram. Would love to see how it turns out for you.
