Servings 6


  • 500 ml whole milk 2 cups
  • 65 g 00 flour 1/2 cup
  • 150 g sugar 3/4 cup
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 3 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 4 eggs at room temperature
  • 125 g melted butter ½ cup
  • 50 g unsweetened cocoa powder 1/2 cup
  • seeds of a vanilla bean
  • a pinch of salt


  • Sieve the flour and cocoa together and put them aside.
  • Separate the yolks from the egg whites, keep the egg whites aside.
  • Pour the yolks at room temperature into the mixer bowl with a whisk hook and operate it at medium-high speed, adding the sugar little by little.
  • After about 5-6 minutes the mixture will become clear and frothy, then add the cold water, vanilla seeds, and salt.
  • At this point also pour the warm melted butter and mix again for a few moments, then lower the speed to the minimum and add a spoonful of flour and cocoa which were previously sieved together.
  • After incorporating the powders, add the heated milk, which should be heated at 40C.

Beat the egg whites with the electric whisk in a separate bowl, adding the lemon juice:

  • the egg whites must be semi-whipped.
  • Pour the beaten egg whites into the bowl with the cocoa mixture.
  • Incorporate the egg whites evenly with a spatula.
  • The final compound will be very fluid, almost liquid.
  • Pour the dough into the previously lined baking pan (9x9 inches) and bake in a preheated static oven at 150 °C (300°F) for about 70-80 minutes.
  • Check the consistency with a toothpick to make sure that it’s still not liquidy.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely.
  • Put it in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
  • Remove the mold and cut it into cubes and sprinkle with icing sugar.
