Chocolate Valentino

This has got to be the easiest cake in the world. There’s only three ingredients to it. Three! Last night’s English tea party was the fourth time I’ve made this wonderful cake. The recipe is courtesy of chef wan.


One pound semi sweet chocolate
4 oz butter
5 eggs

This is how I did it.
One packet of Hershey’s semi sweet chocolate chips plus 1/4 more from a second bag
Melt these over a double boiler with 180g of butter (I’m a President butter fan)

Separate the 5 eggs. Whip the egg whites till stiff peaks form. When the melted chocolate has cooled, quickly stir in the egg yolks. After which, fold in the egg whites into the chocolate mixture and transfer to a greased 22 cm springform pan. Bake at 190.

When the cake is cooled, sprinkle cocoa powder and put whipped cream on top. Yesterday, I used creme fraiche instead but it worked well.

This is a flourless completely dense chocolatey cake. Easy and delicious.
