  • 4 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate not unsweetened
  • 1 stick 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder plus additional for sprinkling
  • powdered sugar I sprinkled with this instead of cocoa


  • Preheat oven to 375. Butter an 8-inch round baking pan. Line the bottom with wax or parchment paper and butter that also.
  • Chop the chocolate if not using chips. In a double boiler, melt the chocolate and the butter together. Stir until smooth. Remove the top of the double boiler from the heat and whisk in the sugar. Then add the eggs and whisk. Sift the cocoa powder over the mixture and whisk until just combined. Bake for 25 minutes.
  • Let cool on wire rack, before removing from pan. I used a springform pan, which made it very easy!
  • Will keep in an airtight container for a week.
