The ideal cake for all chocoholics! You only need a handful of ingredients and the squares take about an hour to make. The filling is made of dark chocolate and whipping cream – when used in the correct ratio to the whipping cream, the chocolate makes the filling thick enough so that no gelatin is required. Since anything goes with chocolate, you can replace the cocoa with a sugar solution mixed with rum, orange or coconut liqueur..., whatever you prefer.


Makes: 18 squares.

Urška Jerman, who creates under the name Cake O'Clock, has been accompanied and inspired by desserts since she was a child. I was inspired to make them by my mother – I would always observe with fascination while she was preparing food, thrilled whenever I got to participate in the process. My father would show his support by enthusiastically tasting what I made and buying children’s cookbooks that he has kept with great care to this day. These books led me to making a mess in the kitchen on my own, an endeavor that has, over the years, become my career that I love and enjoy.
