Before giving into the traditional “new year, new me” resolutions, it is time to indulge in a full on chocolate cake.
. 200g of dark chocolate
. 200 g of sugar
. 170 g of flour
. 4 eggs
. 200 butter + butter for the dish that will go in the oven
. Heat up the oven at 180 degrees Celsius.
. Add the chocolate in bits into a bowl that you will heat over warm water that is boiling.
. When melted, add slices of butter and continue mixing over the fire.
. Take the mixture off the fire and let it cool down a bit before adding the sugar and flour, little by little.
. In a separate bowl, add only the white of the eggs with a pinch of salt. Add the remaining yellows into the chocolate/butter/flour mixture.
. Beat the whites until solid (about 5 minutes).
. Add the solid whites into the chocolate mixture bowl and mix until smooth.
. Butter a dish that goes in the oven, add the mixture and let it heat for about 20 minutes.
