Looking for a pretty idea to surprise your friends ans families ? This is a recipe for you ! I found a picture of a beautiful thanksgiving cake (instead of a bunny it was a pumpkin hidden in a cake !!) and I immediately loved the idea of a surprise cake. As Easter was around the corner I made it a bunny cake ! First it looks just like a traditional (boring) cake, but when you cut the first slice in front of your guest a little bunny magically appears. Everybody while be amazed and will try to guess how you did it. Here is my recipe !

For this desert you’ll need to bake two cakes. I picked chocolate and lemon flavors as I think they are great combined together. The lemon flavor brings a fresh note to the strong taste of chocolate.

Ingredients

Chocolate cake:

– 1 1/4 cup baking chocolate
– 3 eggs
– 3/4 cup sugar
– 1/2 cup flour
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/3 cup butter

Lemon cake :

– 1 1/2 cup floor
– 1 1/2 cup sugar
– 4 eggs
– 1 tsp baking powder
– 1/2 cup butter
– 2 organic lemons

This is how I did it :

Bake the chocolate cake:

1- Melt the chocolate down in a bain marie with 5 table spoons of water

2- Mix together the eggs and sugar in a bowl till the preparation looks whiter. Add de flour, baking powder, melter butter and chocolate and mix together.

3- Pour into a rectangular cake tin (butter the tin first)

4- Cook in the oven at 350° during 30 min.

5 – Let the cake cool down and cut into slices of 0.8in

6 – Cut out bunnies in each slice with a bunny shaped cookie cutter

Bake the lemon cake:

7 – Separate the eggs yolks from the eggs whites

8 – whip egg-whites to a light mousse

9 – Melt down the butter in a bain-marie

10 – Zest the lemons

11 – Mix together the eggs yolks and sugar

12 – Add the lemon zest, floor, baking powder et melted butter. Delicately incorporate the whipped eggs whites

13 – Put your chocolate bunnies in the bottom of you rectangular cake tin.

14 – Pour the preparation on the bunnies

15 – Cook in the oven at 350° during 30 min

16 – Let the cake cool down and cover it with frosting made of lemon juice and powdered sugar.

I hope you enjoyed today’s recipe. Let me know how it turned out if you test it !
