Ingredients
  • 1 pound fine quality bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 10 tablespoons butter
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar, for garnish
  • Serving suggestions: sweetened whipped cream or crème anglaise
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

  • Line a 9-inch round spring-form pan with parchment paper.

  • In a double boiler, whisking frequently, melt the chocolate with the butter. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly then transfer to an electric mixer fitted with a whisk. Add the eggs and beat at the high speed for 10 minutes. Add the vanilla.

  • Combine the sugar and flour and gently fold this mixture into the whipped chocolate base.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until the cake is firm, but the center still moist, about 15 minutes.

  • Cool cake then invert onto a serving plate. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve topped with sweetened whipped cream or in a pool of crème anglaise.
