Description

This cake is definitely for the dark chocolate lovers. It’s like biting into a soft candy bar filled with chocolate-y goodness.

Ingredients

  • ½ cups Water
  • ¾ cups Plus 2 Tablespoons Sugar
  • 5 ounces, weight Semi-sweet Chocolate
  • 7 ounces, weight Bittersweet Chocolate
  • ¾ cups Plus 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 5  Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation

1. Line a 9-inch round cake pan with parchment paper and preheat the oven to 350 F/177 C.
2. Combine water and 1/2 cup of the sugar and bring to a boil in a saucepan over medium heat. When it hits a boil remove from the heat, add chocolate and stir until the chocolate is completely melted. Stir in the butter until melted. Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, in a large mixing bowl using a whisk attachment, whip the eggs, the remaining sugar, and vanilla extract until is has reached maximum volume. This process should take about 10 minutes.
4. Gently fold the chocolate into the egg mixture.
5. Pour into prepared cake pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Remove pan from oven and set on a rack.
6. Cool then wrap in plastic wrap (with the cake still in the pan) and refrigerate overnight so it’s easier to work with for decorating.
