4 ounces fine-quality bittersweet chocolate (not unsweetened)
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder plus additional for sprinkling
Accompaniment if desired: Coconut Lime Sorbet
Preheat oven to 375°F and grease an 8-inch round baking mould. Line base with a round of wax paper.
Cut chocolate into small chunks. In a double boiler melt chocolate with butter, mixing, until soft. Take away top of double boiler from heat and beat sugar into chocolate batter. Include eggs and beat well. Sieve 1/2 cup cocoa powder over chocolate batter and beat until just mixed. Pour mixture into pan and bake in center of oven for almost half hour, or until top has turned a slight crust. Let it set on a rack for 7 minutes and turn upside down onto a serving plate.
Dust it with extra cocoa powder and serve with sorbet if you like it. You can preserve in an air tight jar for 1 week.
