Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Spray a 9-inch springform pan with baking spray. Line the bottom of the pan with a circle of parchment paper and spray again.

  • In a medium saucepan over low heat, combine the chocolate and butter, constantly stirring until fully incorporated. Remove from heat and set aside.

  • In a large bowl add the sugar and eggs. Using a handheld mixer beat together until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. While mixing, slowly add cocoa powder, salt, vanilla extract, and brandy. Add the chocolate mixture and blend until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.

  • Bake in the center of the preheated oven for about 50 minutes or until a thin crust forms on the top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with few crumbs attached. Remove and cool in the pan on a bakers rack. Remove the sides of the pan and dust with powdered sugar and arrange seasonal berries in a pleasing fashion on and around the cake. Slice and serve with Whipped Cream.
