This is one of those cakes that brings me back to my childhood. I remember eating the remnants of the cream before the cake went to the oven, the chocolate smell in the house and garnish the cake with the chocolate sprinkles. Beautiful memories!

For the cake, beat the eggs and the brown sugar until a homogeneous and creamy mixture. Add the chocolate powder, milk and mix for 3 to 4 minutes. Add the flour mixed with baking powder and beat until a homogeneous mixture.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 50 minutes. When the cake is cooked, unmold onto a plate and let cool completely.
For the filling, Beat the cream with the powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.
Slice the cake in half with a long knife. Place the bottom slice of the cake on a plate and fill the middle with a portion of the cream. Cover with the top slice of the cake and spread the remaining cream over sides and top of the cake. Garnish with chocolate sprinkles and serve. Bon appetit!!!
