Oh My Gosh......was this ever good. I swear my kids don't have any taste though. Or, no appreciation for rich, deep chocolaty flavor. This is majorly fattening....(once you see what the ingredients are, you will agree), but it was worth it - Ha! The recipe says that it's 252 calories a slice (serves 18)....Yikes!
3 cups of (18 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips
2 sticks of butter
6 large eggs, at room temp
Heat oven to 425*. Coat an 8x3 in cake pan with nonstick spray. Line bottom with wax paper; spray paper. Have a larger roasting pan ready.
Melt chips and butter together; stir until will blended.
Beat eggs in a large bowl with mixer on high for 7 mins or until tripled and soft peaks form. Fold in chocolate mixture until blended. Pour into cake pan.
Place large roasting pan in oven; place cake pan inside. Pour boiling water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cake pan. Cover cake pan loosely with foil; Bake 40 mins. (Cake looks soft but sets when cold).
Cool cake in pan on wire rack. Cover and refrigerate 3 hours or until firm. Invert on serving platter; shake down sharply to release cake. Peel off paper.
If desired, lay 3/4 in wide strips of paper in a criss cross pattern on cake. Sift powder sugar on top.
