Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 10" cake
Ingredients
  • 8 Medium Eggs (about 60g each) - separated
  • 140g Molasses Sugar or Brown Sugar
  • 23g Cocoa Powder & more for dusting
  • 200g 60% Dark Chocolate (I use Callebaut 60%) - finely chopped
  • a Pinch of Salt - optional
Equipment
  • 10” Springform Cake Tin - lined
  • Cake Mixer (I use Tefal Masterchef Gourmet Kitchen Machine)
  • 1 large Mixing Bowl
  • 1 medium heatproof Bowl
  • Small Pot
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat Oven to 135C. Line the bottom of a 10” springform cake tin with baking paper and oil the sides with butter/olive oil.
  2. Bring a small pot with a bit of water to simmer. Place dark chocolate into a heat proof bowl, and place on top of the pot melt the chocolate.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk egg whites on high speed to soft peaks, the egg whites look light, airy and will flop down when turn over. Transfer the whisked egg whites to a big bowl to set aside.
  4. Add egg yolks and molasses into the 1st bowl, and whisk on high speed until pale yellow and airy. Add in cocoa powder and whisk well.
  5. Remove the bowl from the mixer, add in melted chocolate and stir well with a rubber spatula.
  6. Stir ¼ egg whites into the batter to lighten the batter, then gently fold in the rest of the egg whites. It’s ok if there’s a few streaks of egg white, don’t overfold or the cake will deflate. This video shows how to beat the egg whites and fold into the liquid batter.
  7. Pour batter into the prepared cake tin, and smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
  8. Bake until the cake pulls away from the sides of the tin and is set in the center, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack; remove sides of tin. Best to serve at room temperature, dusted with cacao powder. Top with some berries if preferred.
Notes
* If you do not have a springform pan, half the recipe and use 12 individual ramekins.
