DIRECTIONS

  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven and preheat oven to 300°F.
  • Butter and flour 9 inch spring form pan and line bottom with parchment paper.
  • Melt the chocolate with the butter in a heatproof bowl set over a saucepan of about 1.5 inches of nearly simmering water, whisking until smooth.
  • Remove bowl from heat and let cool to room temperature.
  • Beat egg yolks and 3/4 cup of the sugar with an electric mixer on medium-high speed in a large deep bowl for 4 to 5 minutes, until very thick and pale.
  • Beat egg whites with clean beaters in another large bowl just until the whites form soft peaks when the beaters are lifted. Beat in the remaining 1 tablespoon sugar.
  • With a whisk or rubber spatua, gently fold in 1/3 of the cooled chocolate mixture into the egg yolk mixture. Then fold in 1/3 of the egg whites.
  • Repeat, adding the chocolate and egg white mixtures alternately in thirds until all of the ingredients are combined.

  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To serve, remove sides of pan. Dust the cake with a layer of cocoa and then a layer of confectioners' sugar. Repeat with a second layer of cocoa and a final layer of sugar. Cut into thin wedges.
