聽說台灣古早味傳統現烤蛋糕 ,爆漿巧克力口味, 爆紅全亞洲!這是我去年10月出版的巧克力棉花蛋糕的秘方。到目前為止,也是有史以來,最美味的巧克力蛋糕。現在,我稍微做了一些改良,然後再反覆測試。它可以輕而易舉的做成好吃的杯子蛋糕、枕頭蛋糕。然後,蛋糕餡可以灑上一些磨碎的黑巧克力,在頂部另外撒上一些巧克力豆,這樣做出的蛋糕口感更好,也充滿著幸幅的味道,確實被打動了。實際測試,效果相當不錯。保證會讓你大喊 「現在不必人擠人排隊也能嘗美味啦」!

材料:

(A)
• 22克,4湯匙 - 粟米油
• 10克,2湯匙 - 可可粉,過篩
• 1茶匙 - 速溶咖啡,過篩
• 28克,3湯匙 - 糖
• 66克,6湯匙 - 牛奶
• 少許 - 海鹽
• 58克,7湯匙 - 低筋粉
• 2個, (大) 蛋黃 或者 3個蛋黃

(B)
• 2個, (大) 蛋清 或者 3個 蛋清
• 1/2茶匙的 - 檸檬汁 或者1/4茶匙塔塔粉
• 48克,5湯匙糖

(C)
• 模具事先用軟化黃油塗抹一遍,均勻地篩上一層麵粉備用

(D)
對於裝飾與餡料:
• 磨碎的黑巧克力
• 苦甜巧克力豆

做法:
1)準備一個小鍋,小火煮熱粟米油,加入過篩可可粉,咖啡粉,不斷攪拌,直到完全融化,然後倒入糖和牛奶。煮至65℃後離火,等稍降溫後,灑上一點海鹽,過篩的低筋粉混合至無乾粉。這就是燙麵了,加入蛋黃攪拌,直到麵糊光滑。(注意少於30次,不要過度攪拌)

2)在一個乾淨的碗,先將蛋白打散成泡狀;再加入幾滴檸檬汁,分三次加入糖,打發至偏乾性發泡, 直到出現大彎勾,大約3-5分鐘。

3)攪拌好的蛋黃糊,加入打發好的三分之一的蛋白,攪拌均勻。再全倒回蛋白盆里,。一定要用翻拌手法,以免消泡,並拌勻。

4)把拌勻的麵糊從高處均勻倒入蛋糕模,蛋糕餡灑上一些磨碎的黑巧克力,在頂部另外撒上一些巧克力豆。雙手提起烤盤,左右抖動幾下,使麵糊更平整。摔兩下除去氣泡。

5)放烤箱中層,冷水浴130°c-150°c度,上下火烤60分鐘。烤好後,打開烤箱門, 冷卻至少10分鐘。出爐後, 再摔兩下,才不會出現塌陷。烘烤時間應根據蛋糕模具的大小來決定。不同的烤箱由於內部結構、控溫精準性的不同,實際溫度會有差,最好是買一個烤箱溫度計,放在烤箱內,這樣才能校正誤差。

6)放在冰箱冷藏,不要超過3天。
