Chocolate Gateau III (D, KLP, TNT)
Source: My friend Karen Bake
Yield: 1-8" cake

6 oz. sweet chocolate, or KLP semisweet chocolate
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick unsalted butter
6 eggs, separated
1/3 cup flour or matzo cake meal

4 oz. sweet chocolate or KLP semisweet
1 tsp. butter
3 tbsp. water

Make Cake:
Melt chocolate in 3 tablespoons water over low heat. Add sugar, then butter. Remove from heat and cool.

Add yolks, then flour. Beat egg whites until stiff. Fold in chocolate.

Butter an 8" square or round pyrex dish. Pour batter in it. Place pan in a larger pan. Fill larger pan with hot water to within 1" of top of cake pan. Bake at 350°F for 40 minutes.

Make Glaze and Assembly:
Melt chocolate over low heat with water. Remove from heat. Add butter. When cake is cool, unmold and pour glaze over it. (you probably will have to spread it with a knife.)

Keep in refrigerator until ready to serve. Decorate when cold using paper strips or a doily and powdered sugar.

Can be doubled for a 9"x13" pan.

Poster's Notes:
I've made this for Passover with the above substitutions. I've also substituted pareve margarine for the butter--It was delicious! I also have never decorated it with the powdered sugar--not necessary.
