Very light as it uses cream and not butter. I added nuts to this version. They are optional. A nice trick to get a delightful softness, turning off the oven and letting the cake settle in the oven for the next five minutes. Enjoy! —Kenza Saadi

What You'll Need
  • 250 grams dark chocolate
  • 150 milliliters cream (heavy)
  • 60 grams sifted flour
  • 1 pinch salt

  1. Melt the chocolate in bain-marie.
  2. In a large bowl mix the eggs and the cream.
  3. In another bowl mix the sifted flour, the sugar, the pinch of salt and the vanilla.
  4. Mix both using a spatula by adding the flour mixture to the egg mixture in three times. Mix gently every time.
  5. Add the melted chocolate and mix well but gently. Add the nuts if you so desire. Place in a prepared baking pan (preferably rectangular or square)
