This is the one I've tried this week-end, according to my other half, it's really (really) good
- he is a huge fan of chocolate -
It has to be done in a flat pan, like a pie or a brownie pan.
It's indeed a brownie style chocolate cake !
You will need :
4.4oz of chocolate 60 to 70% (125gr )
1/2 cup of sugar (4.4 oz / 125gr)
2tbsp of flour
4tbsp of butter (2.1oz / 60gr )
Turn the oven on 280°F
Separe white and yolk eggs, and reserve the whites in the fridge
Melt the chocolate with the dice butter in a small casserole,
when it's homogeneuous, pour in a bowl
add the yolk eggs, mix
add the sugar, mix
add the flour little by little while mixing
You will have a dense dough, that's normal
Beat the eggwhites until stiff with a pinch of salt
This cake has a light crust/toffy outside, butter your pan and put white granulated sugar in it,
make it turn/shake the pan so it will stick on the butter everywhere,
remove the excess sugar by shaking it over the sink.
- this technique also exists with butter+flour, to avoid the cake stuck in the pan -
When the oven and your pan is ready,
add the eggwhites to your chocolate dough, in 3 or 4 times.
Put it straight in the pan and in the oven for 35 minutes
Check the cooking by inserting a clean and smooth knife in the middle of the cake
- it must come out clean -
Remove of the pan once it cooled a bit
- it's rectracting -
With a crème anglaise, I love it too ;)
