Chocolate mascarpone cake

An easy Chocolate cake recipe, based on a creamy masacarpone and fresh cheese filling. The chocolate is flavoured with powdered ginger but you can also buy chocolate with ginger allready in it if you can find that!

Ingredients:

  • 250gr. mascarpone
  • 200gr. fresh cheese
  • 150gr. dark chocolate
  • 50gr.melted butter and some more for greasing the form
  • 150gr. JulesDestrooper butter waffels (or ginger bisquits or any type of hard cookie...)
  • 2 eggs
  • 35gr caster sugar
  • 1 tsp. powdered ginger
  • Springform of 20 Ø
Preheat your oven at 190°.
Break up the waffles in pieces and put them in the blender, pulse and grind to a fine crumble.

Mix the crumble with the melted butter  and spread this in the springform. Press well with the back of a spoon, certainly on the edges. Bake this in the oven for 5 minutes. Take it out and let it cool down and turn down your oven to 170°.










Mix the mascarpone with the fresh cheese to a smooth cream. Break the eggs and put them in the cheese/mascarpone cream together with the sugar.


Melt the chocolate 'au bain marie' and add the ginger to it.

Add the melted chocolate to the mascarpone/cheese mixture and pour it in the form. 
Put in the oven for 50-60 minutes. Take it out and go around the edges of the form with a thin knife to cut the the cake loose from the side of the form. Let the cake cool completely down in the form. 
Don't worry if the cake collapses a bit, that's normal.

Enjoy,
