Eggnog Nega Maluca Cake

The original recipe for "Nega Maluca" is a Brazilian classic, and is a super-simple chocolate cake. The name can be translated as "Crazy Black Woman" – and it will dye your mouth black if you aren’t careful!

I jazzed up the traditional recipe (made with buckwheat flour and cornstarch) by adding chia gel and egg nog for a bit of extra "binding" and flavour. It takes a while to bake through, but it is worth every agonizing minute!
