Preparation steps


For the batter, melt the chocolate with the butter over a hot water bath. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until fluffy. Beat the egg whites with salt until stiff. Mix the flour, cornstarch, baking powder, ground almonds and vanilla seeds. Fold in the egg whites and egg yolk mixture into the flour mixture.

Preheat the oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F). Grease the baking pan with butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 45 minutes. Turn the oven off and let the cake stand for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool completely.


For the buttercream, heat the cream over medium heat. Slit the vanilla pod horizontally, scrape out the seeds and add to the cream. Separate the eggs. Beat the egg yolks and sugar. Pour in the hot cream and vigorously stir. Pour the egg cream back into the pan. Warm over low heat, stirring constantly. Pour the cream through a sieve and let cool to room temperature. Add the room temperature butter and beat for 15 minutes with a hand mixer, until thick and frothy.

Stir the vanilla cream into the butter mixture. Remove 1/3 of the buttercream. Melt the dark chocolate over a hot water bath. Cool to room temperature and mix with the smaller portion of the buttercream. Coat the cake with a thin layer of chocolate cream. Then coat with a thick layer of vanilla cream. Use the remaining cream to decorate the cake in a checkered pattern. Cut into pieces and serve.
