Belated Valentines

20180217_163319This was meant to be a Valentines cake but baked it yesterday. I pimped a recipe of Finnish mocca  brownies on a cookbook site of a dairy produce company (Valio). This cake is not quite moist as brownies are but with the extra clicks of quark, it is certainly as filling and melt in the mouth.

This is a recipe for a small cake. Double the recipe to make a panful.

100 g butter, 1 dl coffee, 2,5 dl flour, 1/2 dl cocoa powder, 1/2 dl baking powder, 2 eggs, 1  1/2 dl sugar, 150 g quark (I used a flavoured one, Irish cream rahka).

Melt the butter and mix with coffee. Let cool. Mix the dry ingredients. Separate one egg and let the yolk wait for the quark. Beat the eggs and sugar.

Add the butter mix and the flour mix to the eggs. Pour into a greased pan. Mix the quark and the egg yolk and put small clicks of it in the cake. Even out the surface and make decorative patterns if you like. Bake in 200 C for 20 minutes.

Frosting: 50 butter, 1 tbsp Amaretto, 6 dl powdered sugar. Melt the butter and mix in the other ingredients. Pour over your cake. Decorate with dried or fresh berries. Enjoy!
