Today is a special day, your sweetheart's birthday.

Of course, this has to be celebrated properly and what should not be missing at a birthday party? Exactly, a fabulous birthday cake.

The idea for it was quickly found, at the last relatives visit a chocolate cake with redcurrants tasted him particularly well and he pushed at least two pieces more than usual;)

Unfortunately, the dear aunt who has baked the cake, currently on vacation, call quickly and ask for the recipe was not in it.

Thank God there is the good old internet, Google helped and so I have chef found a suitable recipe, which I then only a little modified.

Together with my brother then this great cake was conjured up. If we cook together / bake / do things in the kitchen, it is always a bit chaotic, but with the result we were both very satisfied.

Incidentally, the cake also tastes wonderful to his sweetheart and he said “In any case, you have to post it on your blog, it's really delicious!”

If you like it a bit easier, you can also use quark instead of cream.
