This flourless cake is very very similar to a chocolate cake made in Ferrara (North of Italy) that's called "Tenerina" (softy cake) and made the first time in honour of Elena Petrovich from Montenegro, married to Vittorio Emanuele III and their tender love.
It's really really easy and everyone can make it but it's really good.
4-oz dark chocolate coarsely chopped
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup cocoa powder
Melt chocolate with butter into the microwave at low temperature mixing now and then, add sugar, mix untill warm then add eggs one at time mixing well.
Add vanilla extract and sifted cocoa, mix and pour into a slightly greased 8 inch pan.
Bake at 375 F° about 20-25 minutes, cake will remain short, soft and moist.
Serve at room temperature with a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar.
Let me try if it's working again!
I had a lot of trouble with Blogspot editor, so many my will to post expired for a long time.
Now my almost-2-years-old Lorenzo is out with grandma and I have a little time to try: if it's working good I'll start posting again recipes and more.
I was so busy with my new site www.lamoraromagnola.it , it's all in Italian and I feel the need to have a more international corner but I'm too lazy to translate the whole site!
Shame on me!
Now I post, 3, 2, 1...
