No oven and no ready-made cookies

You don’t need an oven to make this delicious chocolate cake with pudding butter cream. Nor is the cake base made from cookies, as is the case with many no bake cakes.

The chocolate cake layers are baked in a pan. You heard me right! All you need for the cake layers is a pan and a stove.

There are only three thick sponge cake layers that you need to bake out. Although each cake layer takes about 15 minutes to bake in the pan, you can devote that time to the cake cream.

Very chocolaty and creamy

This frying pan cake is made of a chocolate sponge cake. It tastes fluffy, soft and moist. But most of all, it is very chocolatey.

Even more chocolate flavor is given to the cake by the chocolate glaze it is covered with. Unlike the classic chocolate glaze, this one is very delicate, not solid, but not runny even after cooling.

Perfectly complement the chocolate cake layers with the pudding butter cream. As the name suggests, the cream is made of butter and homemade vanilla pudding. It tastes heavenly airy and creamy at the same time.

Slowly bake the chocolate cake layers

You should bake the cake layers in a frying pan** on the lowest heat (for me it was 1). This way they will be baked through from the inside as well. With high heat, they could burn from below and remain raw on the inside.

I had a Ø 20 cm (diameter at the bottom of the pan) large pan. In this pan, each cake layer took about a quarter of an hour to bake on my end.

Note that if you use a slightly larger pan so that the cake layers are thinner, the baking time will also be shorter. It’s the same in reverse: if you have an even smaller pan, it will take a little longer to bake.

Another important thing to remember is to use a pan lid. Be sure to bake the cake layers in the pan with the lid closed. This way they will be baked from the top and inside as well.

You can check whether a cake larger is done here, just as with a sponge cake from the oven, with the help of a chopstick test. To do this, remove the pan lid and insert a wooden skewer into the center of the sponge cake. If it comes out clean, the sponge cake is done. If the wooden skewer remains smeared in the raw dough, you must continue baking the sponge cake.

Instructions
 

Preparation of the dough

  • Mix flour, sugar, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl.
  • Add whisked eggs, milk and vegetable oil and mix briefly to form a homogeneous thick chocolate batter.
  • Heat the frying pan on the lowest heat and grease it lightly with vegetable oil.
  • Pour 1/3 of the chocolate batter into the pan, cover with lid and bake the cake layer on the lowest heat for about 15 minutes.
  • Lightly grease the pan again, add 1/2 of the remaining chocolate batter to the pan and bake the cake layer again on the lowest heat with the lid closed for about 15 minutes. Repeat with the last portion of the batter and let all three cake layers cool.

Preparation of the cream

  • Put milk, sugar, eggs and cornstarch in a thick-bottomed saucepan and mix thoroughly to form a homogeneous mass without lumps.
  • Bring the milk mixture to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly, then simmer for 2-3 minutes. Let the pudding cool to room temperature.
  • Whip softened butter for about 5 minutes to a fluffy creamy pale consistency.
  • Add vanilla as well as the pudding in batches and whip each time to a homogeneous cream.

Preparation of the cake

  • Leave some cream for the sides of the cake. Spread the remaining cream generously on two of the three cake layers and stack them on top of each other. Place the third cake layer without cream on top last and spread the sides of the cake with the leftover cream. Chill the cake for at least 3 hours (or overnight).

Preparation of the chocolate glaze

  • Mix sugar and cocoa powder in a small saucepan with a thick bottom.
  • Add milk and mix until a homogeneous mass without lumps.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat while stirring, simmer for 1 minute and remove from heat.
  • Immediately add butter cut into pieces to the hot chocolate mixture, stir until the butter is melted, and let the chocolate glaze cool to room temperature. (Pass it through a sieve if you find lumps in the glaze, if necessary).
  • Frost the frying pan cake with the chocolate glaze and refrigerate to dry, about 30 minutes.
