Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cut into large pieces, plus more for pan
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, plus more for pan
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate (61 to 70 percent cacao), finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg yolk plus 3 large egg whites, room temperature, divided
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan. Melt butter and chocolate in a bowl set over a saucepan of simmering water, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat, and whisk in 3/4 cup sugar. Whisk in egg yolk, then cocoa powder and salt.

  2. Beat egg whites with a mixer on medium speed until foamy. Raise speed to medium-high, gradually beat in remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, and beat until soft, glossy peaks form, about 4 minutes.

  3. Fold flour into chocolate mixture with a rubber spatula, then fold in egg whites. Pour batter into pan, and bake until set, about 33 minutes. Let cake cool completely in pan on a wire rack. Remove side of pan, and dust top of cake with cocoa powder.

Cook's Note

Cake can be stored in pan at room temperature, wrapped in plastic wrap (do not let plastic touch cake), up to 1 day.

    In the previous reviews it was written that this cake is very moist so I let it stay in the oven for 10 minutes more but anyway it is EXTREMELY runny. I do not recommend this recipe. Waste of products.

    This cake was airy and crunchy and very moist at the center, so I would recommend to bake it for another 5 minutes so that it is fudgy, but not too runny. Simply delicious on its own but also with fresh strawberries!

    i used an extra egg white, made the cake have a more lofty texture. wonderful cake it will make a great addition to my recipe list. i loved it --- and i hate most chocolate.

    One of the best brownie type desserts I've made or had. Perfect!

    Personally, I thought this was delicious. However, you have to like dark chocolate. My kids were not huge fans because it has that bitter dark chocolate taste. If that's your thing (and it's mine), it was delish with Hagen Daas Vanilla Bean.

    Made this, and it was fantastic! Very fudgy. Good warmed up with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. I dusted top with powdered sugar instead of additional cocoa powder.
