Original france

A few more words about this wonderful French chocolate tart. Originally this tart / cake is called Gâteau au Chocolat, which means something like chocolate cake. There are innumerable variations of recipes for this chocolate pleasure. The chocolatey secret does not lie in the complexity, but in a few, but high-quality ingredients. The cake will rise easily when baked, unbelievable but true, and without any baking powder. Take the mold out of the oven and let the chocolate tart in the mold cool completely for about 2 hours. During this time the cake collapses again. Don't bake the tart too long, because the original French chocolate tart is still soft on the inside. My tart got a few cracks because I am currently baking in mom's oven and I could not assess it exactly. But that didn't take away anything from the ingenious chocolate enjoyment. The time how long you bake the French chocolate tart also depends on the baking pan used (porcelain, steel) and your oven.
So now back to our pure chocolate pleasure and how I baked it.

 Lucina´s tips:

You can simply use baking spray to grease the mold - I like to use it because it is quick and effective. With a baking spray, you don't need additional flour to dust the mold. You can like the cake with a little whipped cream or e.g. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The tart can also be baked gluten-free without flour. Provided if you want to bake them gluten-free, just use (gluten-free) starch instead of flour. I have already baked the tart with 3 tablespoons of ground almonds.

So that the oven is hot when the cake is added for baking, preheat it to 200 ° C.

Grease the mold with a little butter, so that the cake after baking
can be easily removed from the mold. The best way to do this is to use a baking brush.
Lightly grease the tart pan with butter and spread thinly breadcrumbs on top.
