Step 1: Ingredients


  • 12 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar


  • Confectioners' sugar or cocoa powder for sprinkling
  • Ice Cream

Step 2: Spray Spring Form Pan

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 2-inch spring form pan with nonstick spray.

Step 3: Add Chocolate, Butter and Salt

Put the chocolate, butter, and salt in a large heat safe bowl (I am using a large glass bowl).

Step 4: Melt Chocolate

Bring a saucepan filled with an inch or so of water to a very slow simmer; set the bowl on the pan without touching the water (you are making a double boiler). Stir occasionally until mixture is completely melted.

Step 5: Beat Eggs With Sugar

Beat the eggs and sugar with a standing or handheld mixer until light and thickened, about 8 to 10 minutes. The egg mixture will double in volume.

Step 6: Fold in Melted Chocolate

Fold the melted chocolate into the whipped eggs until evenly combined.

Step 7: Bake

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out wet but not gooey, about 1 hour and 25 minute.

Step 8: Cool Cake

Remove cake from the oven and cool on a rack. When ready to serve remove ring from spring form mold. Dust cake with confectioners' sugar or cocoa powder.

Step 9: Enjoy!

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream if desired. The top of the cake will crack, and the center is pudding like. Enjoy!
