8 ounces

1/2 cup (1 stick)
6 large
1 cup
2 Tbs
Grated zest of


WHIPPED CREAM TOPPING
1-1/2 cups
3 Tbs
1 tsp
best-quality bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
unsalted butter, cut into pieces, softened
eggs: 2 whole, 4 separated
sugar
cognac or Grand Marnier (optional)
1 orange (optional)


heavy cream, well chilled
confectioners' sugar
pure vanilla extract

Unsweetened cocoa powder, for sprinkling

Oven Temp ~ 350°
Bake Time ~ 35 - 40 minutes
Pan Type ~ 8 " springform pan


Preheat the oven. Line the bottom of pan with a round of wax paper; do not butter the pan.

Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over hot water. Remove from the heat and whisk in the butter until melted; set aside.

In a bowl, whisk the 2 whole eggs and the 4 egg yolks with 1/2 cup of the sugar just until blended. Whisk in the warm chocolate mixture. Whisk in the optional cognac or Grand Marnier and the optional orange zest.

In another bowl, with an electric mixer, beat the 4 egg whites until foamy. Gradually add the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and beat until the whites form soft mounds that hold their shape but are not quite stiff. Stir about 1/4 of the beaten egg whites into the chocolate mixture to lighten it; gently fold in the remaining whites. Pour the batter into the pan; smooth the top.

Bake until the top of the cake is puffed and cracked and the center is no longer wobbly.

Do not over bake.

Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack; the cake will sink as it cools, forming a crater with high sides.
At serving time, whip the cream with the confectioners' sugar and vanilla until not quite stiff. With a spatula, carefully fill the crater of the cake with the whipped cream, pushing it gently to the edges. Dust the top lightly with cocoa powder.
Run the tip of a knife around the edges of the cake; carefully remove the sides of the pan and serve.

Chocolate cloud cake recipe yields 8 to 12 servings.
