Today, the HozOboz recipe is again dedicated to dessert. Our dessert is truly the dream of all sweets - a chocolate cake. Moreover, this is a cake with a very unusual filling of apricot jam, and, frankly, this is doubly pleasant. To prepare such a dessert is a separate allowance, but there is even more so. In our review, as usual, we will discuss not only the exceptional taste of the product, but also its beneficial properties, starting from the ingredients. And, of course, this time the matter will also not do without a historical digression, especially since, already based on the components, you will immediately notice that the chocolate cake, the recipe of which we will offer, is very similar to the well-known and beloved Sacher cake .
Of course, it's hard to argue because there is cocoa, dark chocolate, and the most important ingredient - apricot jam, but still it's not "Sacher" and we'll prove it to you. The thing is that our recipe for chocolate cake is somewhat special, and this gives its taste its own zest, so let's hurry to find out everything ourselves and proceed to the review.
First, according to tradition, let's talk about the history of the dish. Of course, the history of chocolate desserts, and cakes are no exception, began no earlier than chocolate itself. And according to sources, it has a thousand-year history, or more precisely, chocolate has been known on earth for about three thousand years. The first information about cocoa, the main product from which chocolate is obtained, indicates that it had nothing to do with today's tasty and sweet dessert. The first to consume cocoa were the Aztecs, who considered this product sacred and prepared a special tart drink from it. When the Spaniards captured the territory of today's Mexico, then, along with other trophies, substantial reserves of cocoa beans were brought to Europe.
Since that time, the first information about this product has already appeared in Europe. However, the prices for cocoa were so high that even armed battles were fought for it - to get a ship carrying cocoa grains was considered a great success in those days. And the whole point was that it was not possible to grow cocoa in European territory, because this product requires special conditions and grows in a certain climate. And this fact has not changed so far - cocoa is grown mainly in South and partly Central America. Having captured Mexico, the Spaniards received a monopoly on cocoa and it lasted for about 100 years. Naturally, being monopolists, the Spaniards sold cocoa at an unthinkably high price, and only a select few, for example, King Louis XIV of France, could afford such a luxury. He then became a trendsetter for a chocolate drink, his court chefs cooked according to a special secret recipe. Already from him, the fashion for chocolate spread throughout Europe and eventually acquired the character of an epidemic.
Chocolate began to be drunk in England and Holland, and later it was no less loved in Germany, Italy and Switzerland, which today, by the way, is a manufacturer of not only the best watches, but also the most delicious chocolate. With the advent of engines that separate cocoa from fat, the price of chocolate began to drop noticeably, as this technology made it possible to preserve the product much longer. And as the price went down, it became more affordable and, as a result, more and more new recipes appeared with cocoa. This is how all these incomparable desserts appeared and it should be noted that a delicious chocolate cake is not the only thing that can be prepared using cocoa. It will make excellent chocolate icing for a cake, and a wonderful chocolate cream for a cake or pie, and hot chocolate in the form of a drink, and chocolates and much more at the request and imagination of the confectioner.
In other words, we can say that the advent of chocolate made a grand breakthrough in the confectionery industry and, in principle, became perhaps the greatest discovery in this area. Well, today almost every housewife knows how to make a chocolate cake, so our recipe will be another opportunity to surprise loved ones and enjoy it.
