Ingredients

    For the cake:

  • 150 grams (1 cup) all-purpose flour
  • 100 grams (3/4 cup) chocolate powder
  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) softened butter
  • 150 grams (2/3 cup) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 6 eggs
  • 200 ml (about 1 cup) milk
  • For the filling:

  • 400 ml (1 pint (473 ml)) heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar to beat the cream
  • 6 pineapple slices (about 300 grams (10 1/2 ounces))
  • 150 grams (5 1/3 ounces) strawberries
  • Grated chocolate for garnish

Directions

  1. For the cake:
    Preheat the oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Grease a round cake pan (22 x 10 centimeters (8 2/3 x 4 inches)) with margarine and dust with flour.
  2. Separate the yolks from the whites. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and store in the fridge.Beaten egg whites in a bowl
  3. In an electric mixer, beat on medium speed the egg yolks, the butter and the sugar until obtain a quite creamy mixture. Add the chocolate powder, the milk, the vanilla extract and mix for 3 to 4 minutes until it’s nicely incorporated. Reduce the mixer speed to low and beat the flour mixed with the baking powder until a homogeneous and creamy mixture. Finally, fold gently with a spatula the whipped egg whites.
  4. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes (the time depends on the oven).
  5. Remove the cake from oven, unmold onto a plate and let cool completely.
  6. For the filling:
    In a bowl, whip the cream together with the powdered sugar and the vanilla extract until stiff peaks form.Whipped cream in a glass bowl
