Ingredients
  Butter 115 Gram (0.5 Cup)
  Eggs 3
  Sugar 170 Gram (0.75 Cup)
  Flour 190 Gram (1 2/3 Cup)
  Baking powder 3 Tablespoon
  Strong coffee 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Dark chocolate coating 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Rosemary 1 Tablespoon
  Limes 6
  Powdered sugar 150 Gram (1.25 Cups)
  Cream cheese 200 Gram (1 Cup)
  Yogurt 300 Gram (1 1/3 Cups)
  Cream 150 Gram (2 /3 Cups)
  Gelatin 9 Tablespoon
  Whipped cream 150 Gram
Directions

Whip the butter until it's creamy. Add eggs and sugar and blend it. When it's smooth, add flour and baking powder, which you mixed in a seperate bowl first. Blend it and add the coffee as well. Blend it again and pour it in a baking pan. Bake for about 30 minutes in the oven (150°C / 300°F). Let the cake cool down.
In the meantime, chop up the chocolate coating and the rosemary, mix it and let it melt. Put the chocolate coating on the cake and let it cool down again.
Wash the limes in hot water (or, if possible, take organic limes!) and take off their zest. Squeeze them out afterwards and add the juice to the zest. Add powdered sugar, yogurt and cream cheese and mix it. Put the gelatin in cold water for about 5 minutes. In the meantime, heat the cream and then melt the gelatin in it. Stir it like crazy so you don't have any disgusting gelatin bits in your cake later ;) Pour the gelatin cream mixture in the yogurt stuff and blend it. Put it in the fridge until it starts gelatinizing. Then add the whipped cream and pour it on top of your cake. Put it in the fridge and wait for the next day. Then you can decorate it.. or just eat it :)
