Le Choco Fondant

  • 6 ounces dark chocolate
  • 6 ounces butter
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • pinch of salt
Break the chocolate into small bits and melt it with the butter in a pot on very low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon. Remove from heat when all is melted and blended.

Let cool for five minutes then mix in flour, sugar, eggs and salt, beating well after each ingredient.

Butter and flour a 9 inch cake pan (Max uses a fluted edged pan for a pretty effect) and pour in batter.

Bake at 375° F for about 20 minutes. Just the edges of the cake should be cooked through - the center should still be a bit soft. Let cool.

This tastes great if you serve it while it is still warm.
