DIRECTIONS

  • Melt dark chocolate; add melted butter.
  • Add sugar into hot coffee and add to chocolate and butter.
  • Slowly add eggs while scraping the bowl.
  • Line a 8" or 10" spring form pan with aluminum foil.
  • Pour mixture into prepared pan.
  • Bake at 350º F for 35 minutes.
  • Cool completely before removing from pan.
  • It’s quite a heavy chocolate cake so I would garnish with a light fruit like pears, strawberries or perhaps a raspberry coulis. Whipped cream or creme Anglaise will go nicely, as well.
  • Note: I have never made this, so I do not know how easily it will slice. I think using a hot knife would be a good idea.
