This chocolate cake has only 6 ingredients and comes together in about an hour for a simple and delicious dessert. Decadent dark chocolate is the base, with the addition of a few panry ingredients you will have a moist and sweet cake. Serve a slice of this cake dusted with powdered sugar or topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 200 grams dark chocolate (broken into pieces)
  • 3 eggs
  • 120 grams sugar
  • 150 grams melted butter
  • 120 grams flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 ºC
  2. Melt the chocolate in a double broiler.
  3. Separate egg whites from yolks. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks with sugar until the mix whitens and expands.
  4. Add the butter to the yolk mixture and mix.
  5. Add the melted chocolate, then the flour and the baking powder.
  6. Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Pour some of the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and mix well to "relax" the mixture, then add the remaining whites and gently stir with a spatula while lifting the preparation to not break the whites.
  7. Pour the batter into a buttered pan and bake for about 40 minutes, or until a knife's blade pierced into the cake comes out dry.
  8. Serve with custard.

I loved this cake. It was intensely chocolaty, but not too dense. Make sure your chocolate is not too hot when you add it to the egg yolks and also stir constantly or it will cook the eggs.
