How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Prepare 9" spring form pan, grease and coat with 3 tablespoons of sugar.
- In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and 3/4 cup of sugar at high speed for 5 minutes.
- On low speed beat in liquor then chocolate mixed with butter until well mixed.
- In a separate bowl beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
- Gradually beat in remaining 1/4 cup of sugar.
- Gently fold in chocolate mixture.
- Pour into pan.
- Bake for approximately 45 minutes or until cracked crust forms but center is still moist. (Or top is no longer shiny.)
- Top with whatever you desire once cooled:
- Layer to of jam or preserves (this gives it a nice little touch and breaks up the chocolate)
- Layer of Ganache: Pour cream over chocolate. Stir gently don’t want to incorporate air. Stir very gently. Pour over cake rotate cake to cover top.
- Serve with fresh Strawberries!!! Sliced, unsweetened
- Whip Cream optional.
- This is so sinful! Believe it or not I am not a huge chocolate fan. I love this recipe.
- And to easy to make, If you don’t let it sit it will be like pudding. This is ok too! Alot of people can't wait for this to set up. Depends on how you like it. If you are in a chocolate addiction mode. If you let it sit it will cut nice, it should be mousse like. Once you refrigerate it it will become more dense. When we eat this if there is any left overs, I microwave mine a bit to soften it. Even in the cold stage it is delicious. All a matter of preference.
- Use very dark chocolate for this.
