Food to crave for: Rainbow cake

I have been absent for a while but for a good reason: my family was visiting and I spent all my time with them.

Unfortunately the week is over and they are back in Italy now :(

I am really close to my family and I would love to have many Sundays lunch with them, shopping trips or simply see them more often...
This is something I don't see happening in the near future so I have to make these few weeks I have with them as special as possible.

 Mum and I in Marbella

We spent a relaxing time, went mostly shopping and visited Marbella and Gibraltar. We had a BBQ last Sunday and I prepared a nice and colorful cake :)

My uncle Tom came up with the name of the cake :)

What you need


This is very similar to my Chocolate and Walnut cake! Only you have to use less sugar since the cake contains apples and sugary decorations (like the m&m's).

Break the chocolate bar in pieces and melt it with butter in a small sauce pan over a low flame. 
Separate the yolk from the egg whites, and beat the egg whites until stiff. 
In a separate bowl, mix the three egg yolks with sugar and, when the texture is creamy, add the stiffen egg whites and mix everything together.
Mix the baking powder with the flour and add the mixture to the egg yolk composed on small doses.

Add the apples slices, the chocolate cream and mix together.

Pour everything in a cake pan and in the oven at 180C/350F for 30 minutes.

I covered the cake with whipped cream and Nutella mixture, and added the m&m's I previously divided in colours :)

I love it!!

Do you like my rainbow cake? 

Until next time,
