  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/360°F top/bottom heat.
  • Heat a pot of water over medium heat (do not boil the water, just heat it). Meanwhile, chop the chocolate and place in a metal bowl about the size of the pot. When the water is steaming, hang the metal bowl in the pot and stir constantly to melt the chocolate.
  • Cut the vanilla bean open lengthwise with a sharp knife. Then carefully scrape out the pulp of the vanilla bean with the tip of the knife.
  • Put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cocoa powder and vanilla bean pulp (or vanilla sugar) in the mixing bowl of the stand mixer and mix thoroughly with the dough hook. Gradually add water and sunflower oil and continue mixing until a nice creamy dough mixture is formed.
  • Add the melted chocolate to the dough and stir gently.
  • Prepare a 24cm/9in Ø springform pan and line with baking paper or grease with a little sunflower oil. Spread the dough evenly on the bottom.
  • Now put the cake in the oven and bake for about 60 minutes.
  • Remove and leave to cool in the pan.
  • Sprinkle with powdered sugar to taste before serving.
    Buon appetito!


If you also want to make this delicious cake gluten-free, simply replace the wheat flour 1 to 1 with a gluten-free flour mix for cakes. The amount of water and oil remains the same here.
