Chocolate Flourless Cake

8 oz. chocolate and 4 oz butter melted together (may use double boiler or microwave at 50% power for 2 minutes)

6 egg yolks and 2 T sugar

6 egg whites and ½ cup sugar

Whisk egg yolks and 2 T sugar together, then whisk into the melted chocolate/butter mixture.  (Jo Ann suggests that you let the chocolate mix cool down some before adding the yolks.) 

With an electric mixer, whip egg whites and ½ cup sugar into a stiff meringue.  Then fold chocolate into the mixture.

Oil the sides of a 9” cake pan (Pam spray works well) and line the bottom with parchment or waxed paper.  Note:  Jo Ann has also used an 8” square Pyrex dish.  Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

The center will begin to rise.  When it cracks—the cake is done.  The cake will fall in the center as it cools.  When cool, turn out on a plate and dust with powdered sugar or frost with your favorite icing/frosting.
