Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 12 oz bittersweet chocolate (chopped)
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • Unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting (optional)

Instructions

  • Pre-heat your oven to 350°F. Lightly butter the bottom and sides of a 9" springform pan. (Depending on your pan, it might also be good to line with a parchment circle on the bottom).
  • In a double boiler, melt the butter and chocolate together. Stir until completely melted and well combined. Set aside to cool.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with a whisk attachment, add the eggs, sugar and pinch of salt. Whip on medium-high speed for 5-8 minutes until pale, thick and fluffy.
  • Gently fold half the melted chocolate into the eggs until just combined. Fold in the other half of the chocolate until well combined. 
  • Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. Bake for 35-45 minutes until the centre of the cake barely jiggles when shaken, and a tester inserted into the centre of the cake comes out with just a few crumbs.
  • Allow the cake to cool in the pan completely before removing the springform ring. Dust with cocoa powder and serve with raspberry sauce and fresh whipped cream.
