Classic Chocolate Cake

IMG_8529_convert_20150829094132.jpg

As I mentioned before, I had bought a recipe book called 'Poundcake Bible'.
I tried making a 'Classic Chocolate Cake'.
I adhered to the recipe except using a round mold pan (15cm).

In my house was filled with the smell of chocolate. Just after it was baked up, my son came home from school. As soon as he opened the door, he said "I want to eat something like chocolate sweets!" instead of saying "I'm home!" .
I wanted him to wait for a while to make the cake cool down, but he couldn't wait any longer.
He had the hot chocolate cake and just said "It was good."

After the cake was baked, I wrapped it with plastic wrapping paper when it was warm and made it keep moist as instructed.
After several hours, I had it over a cup of tea.
It turned out excellent! It was the best chocolate cake I've ever made. It was not because my skill was good, but because the recipe was very good. The texture was soft but moist, and not too sweet and not too bitter. I liked it very much.

That looks delightful! I like your son's reaction too.

I suspect Shiroi Tora will come in and say this, but a "hot water bath" for chocolate is usually referred to using the French expression bain marie. More information here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bain-marie

Re: No title

Hi, Always visiting.

Thank you very much.
It's interesting to say 'bain marie'. Actually, I didn't know what I should say in English.

As I mentioned before, I had bought a recipe book called 'Poundcake Bible'.
I tried making a 'Classic Chocolate Cake'.
I adhered to the recipe *except using a round mold pan (15cm).

As it appears that you had used a round mold pan, the way it is written means that you had not used a round mold pan.

A better way of writing it would be:

I adhered to the recipe with the exception of the shape of the mold pan. I had used a 15cm round mold pan instead of the rectangular mold pan described in the recipe book.

As I was baking the cake, our house was filled with the sweet aroma of chocolate. Just after I had placed the freshly baked cake on a cooling rack, my son came home from school. As soon as he opened the door, he said "I want to eat something like chocolate sweets!" instead of saying "I'm home!" .
I wanted him to wait for a while to allow the cake to cool down, but he couldn't wait any longer.
He ate a slice of the hot chocolate cake and just said "It was good."

I took the remainder of the chocolate cake and wrapped it in plastic wrap while it was still warm to it keep moist, as instructed by the recipe.
Several hours later, I had a slice with a cup of tea.
It had turned out to be excellent! It was the best chocolate cake I've ever made. It was not because my baking skill was good, but because the recipe was so good. The texture of the cake was soft and moist, and its taste was not too sweet, and not too bitter. I liked it very much.

*I don't know technical baking terms. However, if it is common knowledge to melt something over a hot water bath, then okay. If it calls for the use of a double boiler, then it should be described as such.
If it calls for steeping the chocolate in a bag which is submersed in hot water, then it should also be described as such.

(7)* sift below together two times
70g cake flour
20g cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Mix items (1) through (7) and bake it in the oven at 170℃ for 40minutes.
Take it out from the oven, and while it is still warm, wrap it in plastic wrap.

Hi, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
Oh, I should've said just 'plastic wrap' instead of 'plastic wrapping paper'.
