Ingredients

  • 200 grams (7 ounces) dark chocolate
  • 100 grams (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
  • 150 grams (1 cup) all-purpose flour

  2. Put the chocolate broken into pieces and the butter in a bowl and melt in the microwave. Remove from microwave and mix with a fork until a creamy mixture; set aside.

  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes (the time depends on the oven).
  6. Remove the cake from oven and unmold onto a plate. Let cool completely and serve.
