  • Melt butter and chocolate together in a heavy saucepan over very low heat. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar and eggs 1 at a time. Stir vigorously 2 or 3 times, then gently whisk in flour and salt. Pour batter into the prepared pan. Rap pan once against the counter to settle batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 20 minutes.

  • Run a knife around the edge of the pan and cool for 10 minutes. Unmold cake and cool right-side up on a wire rack.

We didn't really care for this cake. We didn't like the texture, it wasn't sweet enough and the chocolate flavor was non-exisiting. It took 32 minutes for the center to be set. Instead of it being cake-like it was more custard-like. Glad I tried this before serving it to hubby on Valentine's Day. Read More
