Flourless Chocolate Cake

Rated

Ingredients

8 oz good bittersweet chocolate
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1-1/2 cups sugar
5 whole large eggs

Preparation

Grease a cake pan 8-3/4 inches in diameter and 1-1/2 inches deep (approximately).

Break the chocolate into a bowl large enough to receive all the other ingredients. Set over a saucepan of barely simmering water until melted. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Cut the butter into little pieces and beat into the chocolate. Add the sugar and blend well, beating thoroughly. In another bowl, beat the eggs until very frothy and foamy, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture; make sure everything is thoroughly combined.

Pour the mixture into the cake pan and place it in a roasting pan containing enough water to come up 1 inch of the cake pan's side. Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 1 hour, then let it cool completely in the pan. When cold, remove from the water-filled pan and chill in the refrigerator overnight. Do not attempt to eat it while still warm. When ready to eat, run a metal spatula around the edge of the pan and, with a good thump, unmold the cake. Serve with whipped cream or ice cream. It's a killer.
