No cake base – no topping – only a bar of chocolate in the shape of a cake. Not much ingredients and easy to make. No fluffy texture, but pretty tight. Just ahead of my advent and Christmas baking I want to share this recipe with you and hope you enjoy it.
600 gr. dark chocolate
6 eggs (4 separated)
180 gr. sugar
150 gr. butter
2 Tsp. liquid vanilla (2 sachets vanilla sugar)
A bit butter for the pan
Tarte form pan (or springform pan) 10 ¼“
Pre-heated oven at 320°F (top bottom heat)
For this recipe I use my tarte form pan with a removable ground.
Melt the chocolate with the butter in a pan at low heat. Put aside and let it cool down a bit.
Mix the four egg whites until firm.
Put the two eggs and the four egg yolks into a bowl together with the sugar and the vanilla and mix until foamy.
Add slowly while mixing the now a bit cooler chocolate-butter-mixture.
In the end fold in gently the firm egg whites.
Fill the batter into your pan and put it in the pre-heated oven at 320°F for 30 minutes.
For the cool down switch off your oven and let the oven door ajar for approximately 20 minutes.
And here we are – not much to do for a really dark chocolate pleasure.
