Chocolate Cake with Custard ❤πŸ˜‹


Ingredients:


For the Chocolate Cake:


1 chocolate cake (you can use a store-bought cake or make one from your favorite recipe)

1 cup chocolate chips (for garnish, optional)

For the Chocolate Custard:


2 cups whole milk

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 teaspoon salt

4 large egg yolks

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 tablespoons butter

For the Topping:


1 cup heavy whipping cream

2 tablespoons powdered sugar

1/2 cup salted caramel sauce (store-bought or homemade)

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:

1. In a medium saucepan, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, cornstarch, and salt.

2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the egg yolks and vanilla extract.

3. Gradually whisk the egg yolk mixture into the dry ingredients in the saucepan until well combined.

4. Gradually whisk in the milk until smooth.

5. Place the saucepan over medium heat and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens and comes to a gentle boil. This should take about 5-7 minutes.

6. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the butter until melted and the custard is smooth.

7. Transfer the custard to a bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap to prevent a skin from forming. Allow it to cool to room temperature.

8. Once the chocolate custard has cooled, pour it evenly over the chocolate cake pieces. Let it soak for a few minutes to allow the cake to absorb the custard.

9. In a mixing bowl, whip the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar until stiff peaks form.

10. Dollop the whipped cream on top of the custard-soaked cake.

11. Cut the chocolate cake into serving-sized pieces and place them in a serving dish or individual dessert glasses.

12. Drizzle salted caramel sauce generously over the whipped cream.

13. Sprinkle chopped walnuts over the top, and if desired, add some chocolate chips for an extra chocolatey touch.

14. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.
