Soft cake with cream and chocolate

Absolute Softness and ready in 15 minutes: cake with cream and chocolate, con la panna fresca nell'impasto e una golosa copertura al cioccolato fondente.

Today a sin of fluffy throat: soft cake with cream and chocolate. I wish each of you, take turns, come to my house and opened my refrigerator. It is usually packed, with lots of vegetables and bizarre ingredients waiting to be experienced, Sometimes though you heartly, empty like the desert. Typically happens when I leave for a weekend. Here's, the last weekend when I left, I found returning an almost empty refrigerator. Inside just water, Parmigiano Reggiano, a pan of currant almost dying and 500 milliliters of cream with a maturity from there in two days. Could I throw the cream? Absolutely no, I do not throw ever the food.

And so did this sweet, ready in 15 minutes (In addition to cooking time, I can't work miracles), very soft, scented. Glazed with a simple ganache simple dark chocolate shavings and toasted almonds, I saw that in the pantry pounds of dried fruit of each type and chocolate always available.

This cake is part of the so-called CAKES BY BELIEF, ie soft cakes and leavened, mostly without creams, that they keep well for a few days, soft and fragrant.

I decorated the soft cream and chocolate cake with red currants survivors (just for aesthetics, You can omit them). In short, the cream in the dough makes the cake of an exceptional softness, and it's a great way to recycle something, otherwise, you would have thrown. Try it in coffee and milk or dinner, accompanied by a scoop of vanilla ice.
