This is such a great cake.
No flour so it’s great for Passover.
You can not cut slices of this cake so it needs to be served with a spoon.
9 ounces dark chocolate
1 cup butter
6 eggs, separated
1 1/2 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Chop the chocolate.
Melt chocolate and butter in a bowl over hot water.
Beat the egg yolks and sugar in a bowl until pale.
Combine the egg mixture and the chocolate.
Whisk the egg whites into stiff peaks.
Fold them gently into the chocolate mixture.
Pour the batter into a 12-14 inch pie tin.
Place in oven and bake for 16-20 minutes.
The cake will rice and then fall.
Don’t worry, its supposed to fall.
