How to make it

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F (150 C using a convection oven).
  • Butter and flour an 8-inch round cake pan (or 6 inch, if not using cherries).
  • If using cherries, toss cherries with kirsch and set aside.
  • Beat the egg with sugar and vanilla until frothy.
  • Over low heat, in a double boiler, or in a microwave, melt chocolate with butter, stirring frequently to keep the chocolate from burning.
  • When the chocolate is completely melted, whisk it into the egg mixture along with the salt. Mix until smooth.
  • Gently stir in the flour until just incorporated.
  • Scrape the batter evenly into the prepared cake pan.
  • If using, scatter the cherries across the top, pressing down a little to settle them in the batter.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • Dust with powdered sugar, if desired, and serve warm.
