  3. Melt the chocolate and butter in a double boiler (or in a bowl or small saucepan placed over a saucepan of boiling water). Set aside to cool.
  4. Beat the egg yolks until light and fluffy. Slowly add the sugar and continue beating until mixture is pale yellow. Fold in the melted chocolate. Sift the flour over the chocolate mixture until it just disappears. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks form.
  5. Fold egg whites into the chocolate mixture in two parts. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and tap on the counter to remove air bubbles.
