Florentine Flourless Chocolate Cake

Serves 8-10

15 eggs
1 lb. sugar
1 lb. butter
1 lb. 60% or greater chocolate

Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Prepare a springform pan with wax paper in the base.

Separate and set aside the whites of eight eggs. In a mixer, blend sugar, egg yolks and remaining seven eggs.

In a microwave, liquefy the butter (approximately 2 minutes) and then the chocolate (approximately 3 minutes).

Add the butter to the egg and sugar mixture, mixing for 1 minute. Then add the chocolate and mix completely.

Pour the mixture into a separate bowl. In a clean mixer bowl, whip the egg whites until frothy. Then thoroughly mix them into the chocolate mixture. Pour into the springform pan.

Place the pan on two nested trays, with a thin layer of water in the bottom tray. Cook for 35 to 40 minutes.

After cooling, cut and serve with fruit compote and powdered sugar garnish.
