    • 9 oz 70% Scharffenberger chocolate chopped
    • 1 cup` Heavy Cream



    • Add one 1 – 2 inches of water to a double boiler (bain-marie) and allow the water to stay below the boiling point. Add chocolate and butter and allow to melt, gently stirring until smooth. Let cool.
    • In a large bowl combine eggs yolks with the sugar and carefully fold in the chocolate mixture.
    • Beat the eggs whites until firm and gently fold into chocolate mixture. (please note: be careful as to not introduce air while stirring, because it will make the batter too fluffy)
    • Pour batter into 10” round pan and bake for 40 minutes
    • Take cake out of oven and allow to cool. Don’t worry if it caves in the middle. That’s what you want!!!!!

    Ganache Frosting

    • Place heavy cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil. Watch carefully so it doesn’t boil over or burn! Remove pan from burner and add chocolate and whisk until smooth.
    • Allow to cool just slightly before pouring over the cake. You want to start in the middle and just allow it to barely drip over the sides.
    • Garnish with sifted cocoa powder and large chocolate shavings if desired.
