Chocolate cake (without milk proteins).

DI Chiara Maci | 27 Sep 2017


Without milk and without butter, perfect for those who are intolerant to milk proteins and love chocolate.

Compact on the outside and very soft on the inside.

Sweetness and simplicity for a traditional cake with a “modern” smell, perfect for everybody and for every day of the week.

A little bit of innovation today: chocolate cake without milk proteins.

Attention: keep away (but not too much) from the reach of children or they will finish it at once.
