Chocolate cake with smoked peaches and smoked salty almonds. You don’t need that much imagination to figure out it’s crazy good, right?
To do this exactly as we did it you will need a gas burner and a camping smoke. And the cake needs 5 hours in the refrigerator to harden. It’s worth it. Of course you can also make just the cake and serve with something else. Like smoked apricots and smoked salty hazelnuts. So much easier to make:).
Crazy Chocolate Cake with Marshmallows, Smoked Peaches and Smoked Almonds
If you wish, serve this chocolate cake with caramel ice cream! Yum!
- 400 g dark chocolate 56-%70 %
- 100 g butter
- 4 eggs
- 2,8 dl/1,2 cups cane sugar
- 2 dl/0,8 cup wheat flour
- 100 g marshmallows
Set the oven to 175°C/350°F.
Chop the chocolate and melt it together with the butter in a microwave oven or in a water bath. Stir together egg and sugar, just stir, don’t whip. Stir the chocolate butter into the egg paste and add flour. Pour up the paste in a buttered and lightly floured springform pan about 20-22 cm in diameter. Bake the cake in the middle of the oven for about 25-27 minutes. Take it out and let it cool. Let it harden for one day in room temperature or five hours in the refrigerator. Put marshmallows on top and burn the surface of the marshmallows with a gas burner.
- 6 peaches
- 2 tbsp. liquid honey
- Cherry chips or oak chips
- 2 Rosemary twigs
Smoke the peaches in a smoke box. Put chips at the bottom. Split the peaches in the middle and put them on the grate in the smoke. Put two Rosemary twigs in the box if you want. Close the lid and put the smoke box on smoldering charcoal or on a hot plate (no gas plate, or the heat will be too concentrated). They are done when they start to soften, which usually takes about 5-10 minutes. Put the peaches on a plate and drizzle liquid honey over them.
Smoked Salty Almonds
- 150 g almonds
- 1 egg white
- ½ tsp. salt
Put the almonds in the egg white and then let them dry a little. Sprinkle the salt over them and put them on aluminum foil. Put the foil with the almonds on the grate in the smoke. Close the lid and put the smoke box on smoldering charcoal or on a hot plate. It will take a different amount of time depending on how hot it is, you have to check.
1, 2, 3 Chocolate Sauce
- 1 part cocoa
- 2 parts cane sugar
