  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) margarine

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 some flour.
  2. Put the chocolate broken into pieces and the margarine in a bowl. Melt in the microwave. Remove from microwave and stir with a fork until a creamy mixture.
  3. In an electric mixer, beat on medium speed the eggs, the sugar and the lemon zest until obtain a homogeneous mixture. Add the chocolate, milk, the liquid caramel 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.Chocolate cake dough on a bowl
