Start with the chocolate cream as it needs some time to cool down before you can use it:

  • Melt 150g of dark chocolate in 300ml pure cream in a pot on small heat by placing the pot into a larger pot filled with water. The smaller pot needs to at least touch the water. Don't boil the cream! We only need to get it warm so the chocolate can melt. Take it off the heat and out of the pot with water, whisk for about 30 seconds and leave in the fridge over night or put on ice in the fridge until the mixture is very cold.
Now lets get into the chocolate sponge. You need:
  • 5 eggs
  • salt
  • 80g raw sugar
  • vanilla
  • 150g wholemeal flour
  • 15g pure organic cacao
  • 2tsp baking powder
You will also need for later:
  • some rum, scotch or whiskey or at least some rum flavor if you don't want the alcohol
  • any jam to your liking
  • few drops of rum flavor
Whisk egg whites with a dash of salt until stiff. Add slowly sugar and vanilla and whisk for few minutes until the sugar melts. Add egg yolks and only just combine all together. 
Mix flour with baking powder, add to the egg sugar mixture and combine gently. Bake about 170°C for about 15-20 minutes or until ready. Take it out of the tin and wait until it gets cold. Cut twice through the middle, sprinkle some rum and spread some jam on top of your sliced sponge.

Now, when your cream-chocolate mix is really cold, get it out of the fridge, add few drops of rum flavor and whisk it with your mixer on the highest setting for about 1-2 minutes until fluffy like a whipped cream. Don't over whisk it as it becomes a chocolate butter and we don't want it! :D

That is pretty much it! Quick and easy! Now spread the chocolate cream/ chocolate ganache on the sliced sponge, put it all together, sprinkle some cacao or cocos on top and place in a fridge. It would be good to leave it in the fridge for at least 2 hours before eating.
Enjoy!
