Happy Birthday to us!
QueerBienne celebrates today its 2 year anniversary. This only thanks to you. Not only our monthly StammTisch but also the first Bieler Pride after many years we have carried out with you. We laughed a lot, we celebrated a lot and we made even more new friends.
Happy Birthday to us! Here’s to many more beautiful moments!
So you can already celebrate at home, here is a birthday cake to bake yourself.
- 240 ml oat milk
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 240 g wheat flour
- 120 g cocoa powder
- 280 g sugar
- 1 tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 tsp instant coffee
- 2 tsp. vanilla sugar
- 240 ml boiling water
- 180 ml neutral oil
- 120 g applesauce
- 240 ml whipped cream
- 340 g chopped black chocolate
- 40g powdered sugar
- Preheat the oven to 175°C. Grease two 20-cm springform pans and line the bottom with baking paper.
- Stir the lemon juice into the oat milk and set aside for about 10 minutes until it curdles.
- Stir instant coffee and vanilla sugar into the hot water.
- Place the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl and mix well.
- Pour the “buttermilk”, oil and hot water mixture into the flour mixture. Add the applesauce as well and mix the batter with a hand mixer on low speed until everything is well blended (do not over mix).
- Pour the batter into the prepared springform pans and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out almost clean with a few moist crumbs. (Please note: The longer you bake the cake, the drier it will be. Therefore, don’t bake it too long if you like it juicier.)). Then let cool completely, otherwise the filling will melt.
- Bring the whipped cream to the boil in a small saucepan.
- Then pour over the chopped chocolate and stir until the chocolate is melted.
- Add the powdered sugar and mix well.
- Let chocolate cream cool until it has thickened into a spreadable frosting.
- Place one cake on a serving plate and spread the cream on top. Place the second cake on top and spread the remaining chocolate frosting over the entire cake, including the side.
