Cake de chocolate con salsa de chocolate y naranja













La mayoría de la gente que conozco ama el chocolate pero otros no (y es normal no a todos nos gusta lo mismo) personalmente me gusta más en recetas como cakes, postres etc

Pero mi hijo adora el chocolate , el otro día cuando con la Esperanza hicimos las calabacitas cakes ella ocupó un poco de chocolate derretido para los ojitos y boca.Cuando terminó (le quedaba un poco) se lo llevó a Gerardo ni siquiera me dijo.
Es que los mellizos se conocen muy bien entre sí (por eso se aman y se odian a veces)
El otro feliz en elcomputador comiendose los restos de chocolate.

En todo caso este cake de chocolate es muy bueno, y en la salsa lleva jugo de naranja.
la combinación chocolate y jugo de naranja es muy buena. Esta receta está adaptada de una de
Country living.com

(es una receta que solo lleva 290 calorias por tajada normal) Normalmente las cosas con chocolate llevan mantequilla o crema en la salsa esta no.)

Mantequilla solo para engrasar el molde
y papel mantequilla
1 3/4 taza de harina sin polvos de hornear

Con una espátula agregar el buttermilk o el yogurt sin sabor, salsa de manzana y aceite a la mezcla de harina. Combinar hasta que la mezcla tenga una consistencia cremosa.
Agregar las claras ya batidas firmes a la mezcla de harina .
Vaciar esta mezcla en el molde cake ya preparado.
Hornear el cake sobre el rack en la mitad del horno.por unos 40 a 45 minutos hasta que al insertar un mondadientes salga limpio y seco.
Retirar y dejar enfriar por unos 20 minutos.
Dar vuelta el cake sobre un plato y reservar.
Por mientras en otro bol mezclar la crema de queso, el azúcar glass o en polvo, y 1/2 taza de cocoa en polvo.
En una olla pequeña calentar el jugo de naranja unos dos minutos hasta que se reduzca un poco.
