Dominique's French Chocolate Cake
Long time French friend Dominique Blanchard shared her fantastic chocolate cake recipe with me - so rich, it doesn't need frosting.
7 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
12 tablespoons butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup cake flour
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Butter and flour a 10" round cake pan.
Melt chocolate in double boiler over hot, but not boiling water. Allow to cool slightly. Add butter and mix thoroughly.
Place sugar in a large bowl. Whisk in eggs, one at a time until mixture is well incorporated. Fold in chocolate mixture. Bake 40-45 minutes or until done. Allow to cool slightly before tranferring to a cake plate. Serves 6 - 8.
