Rich Chocolate Mousse Cake

Makes 1 (8-inch) cake

CAKE:

1/3 cup Unsweetened baking chocolate

1/2 cup Butter

1 cup Granulated sugar

2 large Eggs

1/2 cup Sifted all-purpose flour

  1. Combine the unsweetened chocolate and butter over simmering water (double boiler). Stir until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the chocolate mixture and sugar. Add the eggs one at a time, beating with each addition. Stir in the flour until combined.
  3. Pour the mixture in an 8-inch pan lined with parchment paper and bake in a 350°F preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean.
  4. Allow the cake to cool in the pan. Carefully unmold the cake by running a spatula around the edges and inverting the cake on a wire rack.
  5. Once the cake has cooled, place the cake inside an 8-inch removable bottom pan. Set aside.
