 Ingredients List

  • 3/4 lb Unsalted butter; at room
  • -temperature
  • 16 Semisweet chocolate; 1 ounce
  • -squares
  • 1 c Milk
  • 1 pn Salt
  • 7 Egg yolks
  • Heavy cream; whipped


Be sure the butter is fully softened (not melted). If it's too hard, it
won't be incorporated into the batter and will melt right out of the cake
onto the bottom of your oven.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. (177 C.) Cut a round of waxed paper to
fit the bottom of a nine-inch springform pan. Butter the sides of the pan
and one side of the waxed paper. Place the paper in the pan, buttered side

Put the chocolate, milk and salt in a double boiler (or a saucepan over
very low heat). Stir frequently, scraping the pan until the chocolate is
melted. Don't worry of the mixture isn't smooth.

Transfer to the large bowl of an electric mixer and beat on low speed only
until smooth. Let stand four or five minutes, to cool slightly. On low
speed, alternately add pieces of softened butter and egg yolks, scraping
the bowl with a rubber spatula and beating after each addition only until
incorporated. Do not overbeat; the mixture should not lighten in color.
When it is smooth, pour it into the prepared pan.

Bake for 25 minutes. It will be soft and shiny and not look done. Remove
from the oven and let stand until it reaches room temperature. Then
refrigerate a few hours, until firm. It may be kept refrigerated a day or

With a small, sharp knife, cut around the sides to release. Press the blade
firmly against the pan in order not to cut into the dessert. Remove the
sides of the pan. Cover the dessert with a flat cake plate and invert.
Remove the bottom of the pan. Peel off the paper lining. The cake will be
about one inch high. Decorate with whipped cream. Making a simple lattice
pattern will allow the dark, dark chocolate to show through.
