Preparation steps

1.

Preheat oven to 180°C (approximately 350°F).

2.

Soak raisins in rum.

3.

Beat butter and sugar until creamy and gradually mix in egg yolks with a pinch of salt.

4.

Mix flour with nuts, spices and baking powder and stir in milk and well-drained raisins into butter mixture. Beat egg whites until stiff and fold into dough.

5.

Spread into a buttered and breadcrumbed springform pan, smooth and bake in preheated oven for about 50 minutes, checking doneness with a toothpick.

6.

Cover cake with buttered baking paper, so that it does not brown too much.

7.

For the icing: Meanwhile chop chocolate coarsely and melt with cream in a pot over hot, not boiling, water. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.

8.

Remove cake from oven when done, allow to cool, remove from mold and cool completely.

9.

Spread 2/3 of the chocolate on the cake and sides and let dry.

10.

Spread remaining chocolate on a marble slab and before it is firm, pushed together like a fan with a spatula into small portions. Leave to harden and decorate the cake with it. Dust with cocoa and serve cut into pieces.
