Chocolate dream with a silky smooth icing

7.5 dl flour
5 dl sugar
3 eggs
5 dl vanilla skyr
1 dl (pasteurised/soured milk, slightly yogurty)
2.5 dl light olive oil
5–6 tbsp cocoa
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Plenty of vanilla extract, according to taste.

 

Directions:
Mix together all ingredients and stir for a few minutes until the dough is smooth. Pour the dough into two well-greased baking forms and bake at 175°C for 25–30 minutes. It is important to keep an eye on the cake and prick it with a fork to check whether it is ready. Make sure it does not overcook. Let the cake cool slightly before adding the icing.
