2. Baked Chocolate Cake

Serves 6 to 8

12 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus more for buttering the pan
1/3 cup flour, plus flour for dusting the pan
5 1/4 oz. good-quality European semisweet or bittersweet chocolate
3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar

Preheat over to 375 degrees F. Butter and flour an 8 inch square or 9 inch round baking pan.

Combine butter and chocolate in the top of a double boiler. Place over gently simmering water and whish until melted and smooth.

In the work bowl of a standing mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat eggs and sugar until frothy. Add flour and mix until well combined.

Fold one-third of the chocolate into the egg mixture, using a large rubber spatula, then fold in the remaining chocolate just until incorporated. Take care not to overmix.

Pour batter into the prepared pan, and bake in over until a knife, when inserted, comes out clean, 35-40 minutes.

Invert onto a rack and let cool to room temperature before serving. Serve with creme fraiche or whipped cream and a few fresh berries.
