Chocolate and condensed milk cake: the goal of a peaceful and happy mummy/Ludi afternoon in the kitchen!

Chocolate and condensed milk cake

As you can see in her Reel, she did it all herself: I just weighed the ingredients and cleaned up the kitchen! 😀
However, I was certainly lucky enough to have eaten this cake too! 😉

Now let me describe it to you: although it requires the help of the oven (the public enemy number 1 during the summertime), this dessert is so easy, fast, fragrant and good that it’s impossible to resist it!

You’ll only need 5 MINUTES to prepare the mixture!

As ingredients we have: toasted hazelnuts, cocoa, chocolate and the unic and special flavor of tonka beans (I have already told you about here, here and here). Do you remember that if you can’t find it, you can replace it with vanilla bean?
This amazing cake is also BUTTER FREE and NO ADDED SUGAR IS NEEDED! The secret? The secret is the sweetness of condensed milk!
