About this recipe:A heavenly chocolate cake with just six ingredients. For best results, use the best quality chocolate you can find. It makes all the difference. I suggest a couverture - chocolate which has a high percentage of cocoa butter as opposed to vegetable fat.
225g butter, melted
575g high quality plain chocolate
175g caster sugar
70g cake flour

Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 23cm cake tin or line with parchment.
Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler and mix with melted butter.
In a large bowl, whip the eggs and sugar to full volume. Gently fold the chocolate into the whipped eggs. Quickly but gently fold in the flour. Pour cake mixture into prepared tin.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 35 minutes, or until the centre feels firm to the touch. Do not turn out of tin until completely cool.
