This beautiful cake is from a blog, that has beautiful and very delicious shots, a real treat for the eyes. The cake was super spongy and melted in the mouth. As usual junior and I, couldn’t wait to finish it, but managed to save some for my better half, who later, when asked, how was the cake, commented, "What cake ? I thought it was chocolate". I guess he is also slowly getting into our chocolate madness.
Bittersweet chocolate 8ounces (225 g) chopped
(with 70% cocoa )
Butter 1 stick ( cut in small pieces ) ( I used 100 g )
Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
Cocoa powder 2tbsp for dusting
Melt butter and chocolate in a double boiler or a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water.
Stir until smooth.
Whisk egg yolks with sugar in a bowl.
Add this egg mix into the slightly cool chocolate, whisking until well blend.
Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
Whisk 1/4 of the whites into chocolate mix, gently fold remaining whites into the chocolate, with a spatula.
Transfer to a greased 8"baking pan dusted with cocoa powder and bake at 350*F for 40 to 45 minutes.
Bake until tooth pick comes out clean.
It took only 40 minutes to cook in my oven at 180*c.
