  • 8 ounces (225g) semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, chopped

  • 1 and 1/4 cups (250g) granulated sugar


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large eggs, at room temperature


  1. Preheat the Oven and Prepare the Cake Pan:
    • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and line a 9-inch (23cm) round cake pan with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Melt the Chocolate and Butter:
    • In a heatproof bowl set over a pot of simmering water (double boiler), melt the chopped chocolate and unsalted butter, stirring occasionally until smooth and combined. Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
  3. Make the Cake Batter:
    • In a mixing bowl, whisk together the granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and salt.
    • Gradually whisk in the melted chocolate and butter mixture until well combined.
    • Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking well after each addition until the batter is smooth and glossy.
  4. Bake the Cake:
    • Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it out evenly.
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center is slightly jiggly.
    • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool completely in the cake pan.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Once cooled, remove the cake from the cake pan and transfer it to a serving plate.
    • Slice and serve the cake at room temperature, and enjoy the rich and fudgy goodness!


  • For an extra indulgent touch, you can dust the cake with powdered sugar or serve it with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
  • Store any leftover cake in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
