Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Butter an 8-inch springform pan, and set aside. Place both chocolates in a large heatproof bowl, and set over a pan of simmering water. When chocolate is completely melted, add sugar and butter, and stir until well combined. Remove from the heat, and stir in egg yolks.

  • Place egg whites in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment; whip until frothy. Sprinkle flour over whites; beat on medium until stiff but not dry.

  • Add 1/3 of the egg-white mixture to the chocolate mixture, and stir until thoroughly combined. Very gently fold remaining whites into the chocolate mixture until well blended.

  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan, and bake until springy but still soft in the middle, about 40 minutes. Cool on a rack for 1 hour. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill overnight. Remove from refrigerator, and unmold about 1 hour before serving.
