Bake in a preheated oven at 170 degrees without a fan for about 40-45 minutes until dry.
Note - since I baked in a thick glazed ceramic pan, baking in it usually takes longer. If you bake in a thinner, the cake will be ready in a shorter time. Monitor and check the readiness of the cake with a toothpick or wooden skewer.

Preparation of the topping:
10

While the cake is baking, prepare the topping.
Keep in mind that both the cake and the topping should be quite warm.
Put all the topping ingredients in the casserole.

Heat the mixture over medium heat and stir until the butter melts and the cocoa is absorbed by the liquid. It is not necessary to cook for a long time on the stove. You should get a homogeneous and shiny mixture.

After you take the cake out of the oven, let it take a breath for 4-5 minutes;)
Then pierce it with a knife over the entire surface to its bottom.
