- 300 grams butter
- 300 grams chocolate
- 115 grams sugar
- 115 grams flour
- 5 eggs
Melt the butter and chocolate together - I have done this over the stove in a double boiler, and in the microwave. I have heard of brave souls who have melted chocolate and butter together in a saucepan over direct heat.
Beat the eggs and sugar together until pale and yellow, and thicker.
You will be left with a pretty runny batter - remember, there is very little 'dry' ingredient in this mix. So you will probably make a mess as you distribute it amongst a lined cupcake pan.
Bake, 25 minutes, 160 degrees.
Of course, for those chocaholics amongst us, the only option is to ice this cupcake with dark chocolate ganache!
