2 tsp. bicarbonate
1 ½ cup milk

Chocolate Cake Preparation

STEP 1: In a bowl, mix the dry ingredients, that is, the flour, sugar, cocoa or chocolate, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir at low speed with the mixer or manually. Next, add the wet ingredients: milk, butter, vanilla and continue beating relatively gently.
STEP 2: Increase the speed and continue beating the mixture, add the eggs one by one and beat a couple more minutes, until the dry and wet ingredients are fully integrated and without lumps.

STEP 3: Preheat the oven to 180 degrees. Put the preparation in a round mold of 22 cm. in diameter, buttered. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Do the test of the stick to verify that it is at its cooking point, the stick should come out clean and dry.

STEP 4: Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. take away from the mould and permit it cool absolutely. Cut two layers of sponge cake to cover them with manjar or jam. It is recommended to make a chocolate border about half a centimeter high around each layer, to contain and prevent the delicacy or jam from dripping down the sides.
STEP 5: Once the cake is assembled, proceed to make the glaze to cover it. Melt the chocolate and butter over low heat, remove from heat and add the icing sugar and hot water, stirring constantly. If necessary, add more water to get the consistency of frosting. Proceed to glaze the cake letting it drain on all sides until it is completely covered
