Ingredients

  • 6 Tbsp Butter Salted or unSalted
  • 250 grams Chocolate I prefer Amul 55% Cocoa Dark Chocolate Bar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 6 Eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat the Oven at 140 degree C or 280 F.
  • Prepare a springform pan but buttering the insides with melted or soft butter.
  • Cover the base with two layers of aluminium foil so that the batter doesn't escape.
  • Chop the Chocolate with a sharp knife.

Double Boiler Method

  • Heat 2 Cups of water in a deep Pan.Let it come to a simmer.
  • Keep a heat proof(non plastic)-borosil or steel bowl on top of the water.It should not touch the water but be 1 cm or so above it.
  • Add the chopped chocolate and the butter.Keep gently mixing the two with a spatula till the chocolate and butter melt and mix together.

Microwave Method

  • Take a microwavable bowl.Add the chocolate and butter to it.
  • Microwave in 30 second bursts on high,6 times.Take the bowl out and mix with the spatula between each burst.If after 6 times its not melted completely repeat the process 1-2 more times.
  • Once its melted and mixed, set aside to cool.
  • Separate the eggs-yellows in one bowl and white in another larger bowl.I use my hands to do it.
  • Whip the egg whites till its foamy and soft peaks form.Add the granulated sugar in increments and keep whipping till the egg whites form hard stiff peaks and looks glossy.
  • Check the temperature of the chocolate-butter mix, once its not very hot(you can touch it with your finger) add the egg yolks and mix.Sprinkle the salt.
  • Take about 1/4 of the stiff egg white and mix with the chocolate butter and egg yolk mixture till it lightens in texture and weight.This is done to make it easier to fold the rest of the egg whites.
  • Now using the Cut and Fold method mix the rest of the egg whites in 2 batches.Take care not to mix in the traditional way otherwise all the air whipped into the egg whites will get away.
  • Once the chocolate and egg white mixture is incorporated(you will still see some white streaks) pour it in the prepared pan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes till the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and the middle is set and not wobbly.
