- 3 eggs
- 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt
- 1 cup carbonated water
- 1 ¼ cup whole wheat flour
- ¾ Cup of cocoa
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of baking soda
- 1 pinch of salt
- 2 cups cranberries, frozen
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
1. Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Place the rack in the center of the oven. Butter a mould Bundt (see Note) silicone or metal non-stick.
2. Chop the chocolate to get about a cup.

4. Add the eggs, yogurt and carbonated water. Mix.
5. Add the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix.
6. Stir in ½ cup of crushed chocolate in the preparation. Keep the rest of the chocolate for the topping.

9. In a bowl in microwave, melt remaining chocolate 1 minute 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds.
10. Pour the melted chocolate over the cake and garnish with cranberries and caramelised. Serve.
