Steps to prepare a tasty Mokkapalat
The first thing is to melt the fat and let it cool. Next we will beat the eggs, together with the sugar until it forms a foam. To that mixture we will add the melted fat.
On the other hand, we will mix the flour, cocoa, baking powder and vanilla sugar. This mixture, together with the milk, we will add to the dough. When everything is well mixed, we will spread the dough on a baking tray on baking paper.
We will put the tray in the oven, which we will have previously heated to 200 degrees for 10 or 15 minutes.
For the glaze, we will mix all the ingredients and spread it on the surface once it has cooled.
