“This is a delicious and fairly easy to make cake from a French friend. It's very dense so don't be surprised when it deflates a while after you take it from the oven. Every time I make it someone asks for the recipe so I thought I should post it here.”

Directions

  1. Melt butter and chocolate to cream. The best technique is bain marie.
  2. Separate whites and yolks of the 5 eggs.
  3. Add the sugar to the yolks and beat with an electric mixer until it becomes white (about 5 min). Then add the melted butter and chocolate, plus the flour stirring gently with a spoon.
  4. Add a little bit of salt to the whites and beat with the electric mixer around 3 minute
  5. Add the whipped whites to the other mixture, stirring gently.
  6. Put the preparation in a cake tin.
  7. Bake in oven at 180°F for 20-25 minutes (though in my oven it usually takes at least 30 minutes).
