Ingredients for a 20 cm cake tin:

75 g butter
3 large eggs
100 g of dark chocolate
100 g of sugar
75 g flour
2 tablespoons water
½ teaspoon of baking powder

For glazing:

100 g of dark chocolate
4 tablespoons water
30 g butter


Melt the chocolate in a bain marie with 2 tablespoons of water. Add the butter and stir until smooth.

Separate the egg whites and yolks. Beat the egg yolks with the sugar until creamy. The electric mixer can make your work easier. Then add the chocolate with the butter and the sifted flour with the baking powder.

Stir the egg whites until stiff peeks and carefully stir them in the yolk mixture.

Pour the dough into a round cake tin with loose base of 20 cm in diameter. Bake the chocolate cake at 160°C for 40 minutes. Let cool on a rack.

Then prepare the chocolate glazing. Again, melt the chocolate with the water in a bain marie. Away from fire, mix in the butter. Coat the cake evenly. Decorate according to taste.
