Bellini Intelli Recipes: Boiled Chocolate Cake

Boiled chocolate cake Bellini recipe

I baked up a storm this weekend, purely to have some lovely treats that I could freeze and that we could enjoy during the next couple of weeks. I made a raw apricot slice, banana bread and this boiled chocolate cake. I converted the conventional recipe into Bellini recipes so I could I make them all using my Bellini Intelli Kitchen Master (such a brilliant machine). You could also make the recipes with a Thermomix, food processor, stick mix and a saucepan! I’ve included the conventional recipe too.

So the first recipe off the rank that I want to share is the boiled chocolate cake. The ‘boiled’ part of the name has to do with how it’s made. It’s unlike your usual chocolate cake in that part of making it involves bringing some of the ingredients to the boil which you will see in the method later.

The texture of this chocolate cake is just gorgeous. It’s a lot denser than usual but the way it’s made means it’s beautiful and moist.

Remember, you can make this with a machine like the Bellini Intelli or Thermomix, OR without. I’ve included both methods.

    That cake looks so moist and yummy! The method reminds a bit of a chocolate brownie recipe I have. Hmmm chocolate 🙂

      It is, Cindy! Actually, when I was making it, it sort of reminded me of a self saucing pudding in a way!

    Don’t you just love a big bake up!!! This cake looks great – so moist!

      I don’t do big bake ups that often but this one was great! I have a freezer stocked with cake and slices for two weeks!

    Why are you showing me chocolate cake on a Monday.. I am trying to make up for all the food/drinks I had over the weekend. Now I am hungry AGAIN.

    Your beautiful images are making me hungry for chocolate cake right now and it’s only breakfast time!

      Who said you can’t have chocolate cake for breakfast? Just like they say ‘it’s beer o’clock somewhere in the world’ it can be cake o’clock too!

    The only good chocolate cake is a moist one. Looks yum!

    Seeing a pic of a delicious looking chocolate cake at 9am is just cruel 🙂 Think I’ll be going on a baking spree too!

    This is not helping my resolve to be good Eva! I could easily make that dairy free with some Nuttelex too… yum 🙂

      Actually, Elliott was not interested in having any (more for me) and Gavin preferred the banana bread I made instead (even more for me).

    I’m having a big bake up tomorrow. Trying to get sorted for the rest of the school week and the start of school holidays. This looks fantastic.

    Not helping with my resolution to eat less chocolate… LOL!!! Looks yummy.

  10. September 21, 2015 / 1:08 pm

    Um, yum! I’ve never heard of a boiled cake before but its sounds delicious.
