Ingredients
  • 6 Tbsp. unsalted butter, plus more for pan
  • 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips (or 8 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate)
  • 6 large egg yolks
  • 6 large egg whites
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • Confectioners’ sugar, for dusting
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 275⁰; with rack in center. Butter a 9-inch springform pan. Place butter and chocolate in a large bowl. Microwave in 30-second increments, stirring each time, until melted; cool slightly. Whisk in yolks.
  2. In another bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks. Gradually add sugar; beat until stiff and glossy. Whisk ¼ of whites into chocolate mixture; gently fold mixture into remaining whites.
  3. Pour into prepared pan; smooth top. Bake until cake pulls away from sides of pan and is just set in center, 45 to 50 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack. Serve dusted with confectioners’ sugar.
