I am so glad it worked out for you! Okay, will post recipe here with appropriate note of author and their copyright. It *is* published on a public website for downloading/printing or email to others so, I think it should be okay.
Flourless Chocolate Cake
"recipe adapted from Wolfgang Puck's"
Yield: 1 - 10 inch cake
4 ounces unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
8 ounches bittersweet chocolate, cut into small pieces
5 eggs, seperated
pinch of salt
2/3 cup of sugar
Powdered sugar for garnish (actually optional)
unsweetened whipped cream for garnish
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Butter and flour a 10 inch round cake pan.
Combine the butter and chocolate and melt in a double boiler over barely simmering water. Whisk together the egg yolks, salt, and all but 3 tablespoons of the sugar. Stir the melted chocolate into the egg yolks until thoroughly combined.
With an electric mixer, on medium speed, beat the egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in the remaining sugar and continue to whip until the egg whites are stiff, but not dry.
Carefully fold the chocolate mixture into the egg whites. Pour into the prepared pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Turn out onto a rack immediately. As the cake cools, the center will sink and crack - do not worry.
Dust the cake with powdered sugar OR decorate the top with melted chocolate and serve with unsweetened whipped cream.
My little notes...I am going to try this with a vanilla unsweetened whipped cream next time...this is surprisingly dense, and very rich.
