10-Minute Batter! Rich Gateau au Chocolat



  1. 1 Egg (large)
  2. 100 ml Heavy cream (or milk)
  3. 150 grams Chocolate bar
  4. 40 grams Butter
  5. 100 grams Pancake mix


  1. I used a bit less than 3 bars of dark chocolate.
  2. I recommend using milk chocolate when making this for kids!
  3. Microwave the chocolate and the butter together for 2 to 3 minutes until melted.
  4. (Stir occasionally so as not to let the chocolate burn.)
  5. Beat the egg in another bowl, add the heavy cream, and mix.
  6. (If the mixture is cool, warm it up a little by microwave or over a bain-marie, so it will be easier to mix after Step 5.)
  7. Add the combined melted chocolate and butter to the mixture and mix well.
  8. Preheat the oven to 180C.
  9. Add the pancake mix all at once and mix.
  10. The batter is done!
  11. Pour the batter into the mold.
  12. Fill a baking tray with hot water and place the mold insde.
  13. Steam-bake at 180C for 25 to 30 minutes, and it's done!
  14. The cake is nice and puffy when baked!
  15. Remove it from the mold once completely cooled.
  16. For taste-testing, I recommend that you bake one cup cake of the batter alongside the gateau au chocolat.
  17. You can make a fondant chocolate cake if you add some leftover chocolate blocks in the cup as well!
  18. This cake goes well with a warm drink!
