Turn the dough over on a floured board and knead it until it is smooth and elastic, about 6-10 minutes. As you knead, dust your hands and your board as needed to help with the stickiness. You may need to use up to 1/8 cup of additional flour.
  3. Shape the dough into a ball and place it a bowl. Cover and let rise for 1 and 1/2 hours, or until the size is doubled. You can make the filling at this point.
  4. Gently punch the dough down and divide it into 18-20 portions. Using a small rolling pin or your hands, flatten each portion into an oval that is about the size of your hands. Spread about a tablespoon of the filling across the surface of the dough and roll it into a log. Repeat with all the other portions. Arrange the rolls in a large baking tray that is greased or lined with parchment paper. Brush evaporated milk on each of the rolls and dip them in breadcrumbs. Cover them loosely with plastic wrap and let them rise for an hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Bake the Spanish bread for 15-20 minutes, or until the rolls are lightly golden.

Spanish Bread Filling :

  1. Heat the butter in a small saucepan until it is bubbly. Add the flour and the breadcrumbs and stir the mixture vigorously with a wire whisk for a few seconds. This is a grainy mixture at this point. Immediately add the milk and keep stirring until the mixture loosens up a bit. Stir for 30 seconds more and turn off heat. Stir in the sugar well until it is incorporated. Set aside to cool. This mixture is a chunky paste.

No creaming butter and sugar with this direction either, to not mention, it whips up in one bowl! That’s right, place your significant stand mixer into the cupboard! 

THE BEST SIMPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE

The cake is made and damp however not excessively chocolatey with simply the proper quantity of sweetness. Julia necessitate the cake to be paired with a raspberry jam filling that adds a pleasant bit. Additionally to the current nice cake direction, is that the chocolate-sour cream topping. Currently I’ll admit, after I 1st browse that it needed 3 ingredients solely, I used to be a touch skeptical. In all probability as a result of accustomed be} used to creating ancient buttercream topping with typical butter and granulated sugar. The ingenuity of the chocolate-sour cream topping very seals the whole factor.

THE BEST SIMPLE CHOCOLATE CAKE

INGREDIENTS :

  • 1 cup [200 g] sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/4 cups [150 g] all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup [240 ml] strong black coffee, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup [75 g] Dutch-processed cocoa powder, sifted if lumpy
  • 8 tbsp [110 g] unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup [240 ml] buttermilk or plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup [160 g] raspberry jam (seeded or seedless)

Frosting :

  • 3/4 cup [130 g] semisweet chocolate chips or roughly chopped semisweet chocolate
  • 3/4 cup [180 ml] sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • Fresh raspberries or chocolate curls (as pictured) for serving, completely optional

INSTRUCTIONS :

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Butter the bottom and sides of two 8-in cake pans, then line the bottom of each with a circle of parchment paper. For good measure, butter the parchment paper and set pans aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the melted butter, eggs, coffee, buttermilk, and vanilla and whisk until the batter is smooth. Divide the batter evenly among the prepared cake pans (I used a small kitchen scale, but you can also use a measuring cup to be accurate).
  4. Bake until the cakes are firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the centers comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Transfer the cakes, still in their pans, to a wire rack an let cool completely.
  5. Once cool, use a dinner knife to loosen the edges of the cakes from the pans and invert them onto your work surface (I had to give the pans a lil’ whack to get them to release from the pan). Peel and discard the parchment paper.

For the frosting :

  1. Melt the chocolate (in a microwave-safe bowl) in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each increment. Remove from heat and whisk in the sour cream and maple syrup. The frosting should be smooth and silky. Refrigerate the frosting until the cakes have cooled (about an hour or so). The frosting will thicken as it cools.
  2. Once cakes have cooled, put one on a serving platter upside-down so that the flat side is facing up. Spread the jam over the top. Put the second cake on top of the jam-slathered cake, again flat-side up- this way you get a nice flat top.
  3. Using a small offset spatula, spread the frosting all over the sides and top of the cake. Julia says there is no need to be perfect with this step- you can frost however you like, rustic-looking or smooth. Feel free to garnish and decorate with raspberries or however you like.
  4. Let the cake sit for about an hour before serving. I put mine back into the refrigerator overnight and served cold the next day, it was divine!
  5. Enjoy!
