A dense cake with an intense dark chocolate flavor and chocolate glaze.
Recipe type: Cakes
Serves: 8
Ingredients
  • FOR CAKE:
  • 7 oz. dark chocolate
  • 4 T. butter
  • 3 T. water
  • 3 eggs
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ cup flour
  • FOR GLAZE:
  • 3 oz. dark chocolate
  • 3 T. powdered sugar
  • 3 T. butter
Instructions
  1. FOR CAKE: Over double boiler (or in microwave in 30-second intervals) melt chocolate, butter, and water together, stirring. Remove from heat as soon as everything is melted and combined.
  2. Separate egg whites from yolks. In separate bowl, mix sugar and egg yolks together. Add melted chocolate mixture and stir to combine.
  3. Add salt and flour, and stir gently to combine.
  4. In separate bowl, beat egg whites until they form stiff peaks. Gently fold whites into chocolate batter.
  5. Grease round layer pan. (I used wax paper in the bottom, and sprayed generously with non-stick spray.) Pour batter into pan.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until knife inserted near the center comes out nearly clean.
  7. Turn cake upside down to cool and frost.
  8. FOR FROSTING: Melt chocolate (over double boiler or in microwave in 30-second intervals). Add powdered sugar and stir. Add butter and stir.
  9. For runny glaze, pour immediately over cake.
  10. For thicker frosting, allow glaze to cool before pouring onto cake and spreading.
  11. Allow cake and frosting to cool completely before serving.
