Chocolate Coconut Milk Cake

Recipe found from Poires au Chocolat

Chocolate Coconut Milk Cake

For the cake:
55g dark chocolate (70%)
85g cocoa powder
200ml boiling water
145g plain flour
1tsp bicarbonate of soda
½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp
90g unsalted butter, melted
230g caster sugar
50g dark brown soft sugar
2 eggs
275ml coconut milk
For the ganache:
125ml coconut milk
125g dark chocolate (70%)

1. Line an 8 inch square pan with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180◦C/350F/mark 4.

2. Chop the chocolate and place in a bowl with the cocoa powder. Pour in the boiling water and whisk until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is smooth.

3. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt into a bowl.

4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the sugars and butter. Once combined, whisk in the eggs, one at a time, and continue whisking until pale and thick.

5. Add the coconut milk followed by the chocolate mixture. Fold in the flour mixture and whisk to combine. Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick poked into the middle comes out with a few damp crumbs.

6. For the ganache, heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan over a medium heat until just boiling. Chop the chocolate and place in a heatproof bowl; pour the coconut milk over the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Cool for 10 minutes before pouring over the cake.
