Ingredients

8 oz
quality bittersweet chocolate
1/2 c
unsalted butter
1 1/2 c
sugar
5
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a cake pan (8 1/4" X 1 1/2" deep and in diameter).
2
Break the chocolate into a large bowl.
Set over a sauce pan of barely simmering water until melted.
Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
3
Cut the butter into little pieces and beat into the chocolate.
4
Add the sugar and blend well, beating thoroughly.
5
In another bowl, beat the eggs until frothy and foamy, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture; make sure everything is thoroughly combined.
6
Pour the mixture into the cake pan and place in a bain marie (roasting pan containing enough water to come up to 1 inch of the cake pan's side).
7
Bake for 1 hour, then let it cool completely in the pan. When cool remove from the bain marie and refrigerate overnight.
8
When ready to eat, run a thin metal spatula around the edge of the pan and with a thump unmold the cake.
