Although Queen Elizabeth II, the Queen of England, has a healthy and light diet, there is one dessert she cannot resist: chocolate cake and cookies. Yes, autumn cakes and cookies.
Darren McGrady, who is the chef at Buckingham Palace, said that a few years ago the Queen was very fond of chocolate, such as Rich Tea Biscuits.
So that when he is going to travel, the cook brings chocolate cake and cookies if the queen wants a piece at any time.
There are many recipes for chocolate cake with cookies, but we have the original recipe, which Queen Elizabeth II ate in her palace and liked to accompany the traditional 5 o’clock tea.
- 120 grams of dark chocolate
- 120 grams of butter
- 1 egg
- 240 grams of Rich Tea Cookies
- 1/2 teaspoon butter for the mold
To the ceiling:
- 270 grams of dark chocolate (70%)
How to make chocolate cake and cookies:
1-Cut the cookies
Cut them with your hands until they are the size of almonds. If you don’t have Rich Tea cookies, you can use traditional Maria cookies.
Grease a removable pan with butter or cover the bottom and walls with parchment paper.
3- Melt the chocolate on the cake
You can do it in a bain-marie or microwave, in 10 second intervals to prevent it from burning.
4-Mix butter and sugar
Put the butter cut in pieces and at room temperature in a bowl. Add the sugar and beat with an electric mixer until combined.
5-Add melted chocolate
Pour the melted chocolate into the bowl of butter and sugar and beat again with electric sticks.
6-Pour the cookie mixture
Pour the chocolate mixture on the cut cookies and stir well so they are completely covered with chocolate.
7-Turn it over and let it cool
Pour the mixture into the prepared container, pressing well so that there are no lumps. Store in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.
8- Remove the cake and cover the cake
Remove the cake from the refrigerator, gently unroll and cover with 240 grams of chocolate from the cold melt in the microwave. Spread with a spatula to cover the entire surface and sides of the cake. Refrigerate until the chocolate hardens.
9- Decorate the cake
Melt the remaining 30 grams of chocolate, place them in a piping bag fitted with a small nozzle and draw a watermark on the cake. He serves.
