  • For 9-inch pan


  • ¼ cup Butter 60g
  • cup Unsweetened Dark Chocolate 100g
  • 5 Eggs Large
  • ½ cup Sugar 100g
  • ½ Flour 60g


  • Separate the egg yolks from the whites.
  • Melt the butter and the chocolate. Set aside. Mix the egg yolks and ¼ cup of sugar until smooth.
  • Beat the egg whites with the rest of the sugar (¼) cup until firm.
  • Add the butter-chocolate mix to egg yolk-sugar mix. Stir until everything is blend in.
  • Add the flour gradually and stir.
  • Add the beaten egg whites and mix it with a rubber spatula, be careful to mix by starting from the bottom and bring it up and repeat. Not to "break" the whites.
  • Cook in the oven at 350F for 25 minutes - your knife should come out clean when you dip in the cake to know if it is cooked.
