DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Use a 9 inch springform pan.
  • With pan locked, coat inside of pan with a thin film of butter. This will help alumnium foil to adhere to contour of pan. Place sheet of alumnium foil inside pan and press along bottom and sides.
  • This step will prevent batter from leaking during baking.
  • In heavy saucepan, over low heat, combine butter, sugar, and coffee; stir until all is melted.
  • Remove from heat.
  • In separate bowl, beat eggs (by hand or electric mixer) a couple of minutes, until slightly thickened.
  • Stir in chocolate and mix to a uniform color.
  • Pour in pan and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.
  • Cake will fall slightly as it cools.
  • When room temperature, open springform pan, peel foil away from sides, place serving plate on top and flip over. Remove remaining foil.
  • Serve at room temperature.
  • Note: This cake is rather hard to slice, use plain dental floss or kitchen string, and holding taut in both hands, slice through cake, dividing it as you go.
  • For Christmas, decorate center with holly leaves and cranberries.
