The “Hardrock 100” cake

By July 24, 2014No Comments

When Kilian finished Hardrock 100 I wanted to be there celebrating with him, but due to another race I had in mind to run myself I could´t be there.

So I decided to bake him a cake, and what is better than a big tasty chocolate cake to someone who loves chocolate.



0,2 liter brown sugar

0,1 liter white sugar

0,1 liter of honey

4 egg

0,3 liter milk

0,5 liter flour

0,15 liter raw cacao

3 teaspoons baking soda

2 teaspoons vanilla sugar

1 teaspoon salt

200 gram dark chocolate

200 gram butter


250 gram dark chocolate

0,3 liter cream

1 teaspoon butter

Set the owen at 180 degrees

whisk butter sugar and honey.

Add the yolk

Add all the dry ingredients

Add the milk

Add the chocolate ( melt it before)

Add the egg white (whisk them hard before)

Use round forms, and now you can chose if you want to make 3 or 2 cakes, I did 2 bigger ones. If you make 3 it will be more glazing on and in the cake, which is yummie! Bake in the owen fro 15-20 minutes, less if you make 3 cakes.

The Icing / Glazing

Warm the cream, it shall almost boil.

Add the chocolate

Add the butter

When the glazing is cold it´s easier to spread on the cake.

You spread the glazing in-between the cake layers and on top of the cake.

On the top of the cake I garnished with summer berries.
