  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3/4 cup white sugar

  • 3 eggs beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 300º F. Grease an 8" round cake pan, and dust with cocoa powder.
  • Melt the chocolate and butter, two options: In the top of a double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt chocolate and butter. OR microwave in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second bursts, being careful not to over-nuke.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in sugar, cocoa powder, eggs, and vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack and cool completely. Slices can be reheated for 20 to 30 seconds in the microwave before serving.
