How to make it

  • Grease a cake pan (8 1/4" X 1 1/2" deep and in diameter).
  • Break the chocolate into a large bowl.
  • Set over a sauce pan of barely simmering water until melted.
  • Remove from the heat and cool slightly.
  • Cut the butter into little pieces and beat into the chocolate.
  • Add the sugar and blend well, beating thoroughly.
  • In another bowl, beat the eggs until frothy and foamy, then gently fold into the chocolate mixture; make sure everything is thoroughly combined.
  • Pour the mixture into the cake pan and place in a bain marie (roasting pan containing enough water to come up to 1 inch of the cake pan's side).
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour, then let it cool completely in the pan. when cool remove from the bain marie and refrigerate overnight.
  • When ready to eat, run a thin metal spatula around the edge of the pan and with a thump unmold the cake. As written from "Cooking With 2 Fat Ladies"

    I first found this recipe in a calendar from "The Two Fat Ladies" and after trying it out I immediately put it on the menu in my cafe, it was an absolute winner. It has to be the best flourless choc/mousse cake anywhere...seriously!!!
    Try adding some rum or vanilla bean.
    Great post, thanks
