  • 2In food processor combine chopped chocolate. Process until finely chopped.
  • 3In saucepan bring 1/2 cup water and sugar to boiling. Stir to dissolve sugar.
  • 4With food processor running, add boiling sugar syrup to chocolate through feed tube. Add butter, 2 tablespoons at a time. Add eggs. Process until smooth.
  • 5Pour the chocolate mixture into prepared pan. Place pan in roasting pan on rack in center of oven. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to reach halfway up sides of pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out with just a few specks of chocolate and cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Transfer cake pan to wire rack. Cool 10 minutes.
