The secret, it seems, is using high quality chocolate. His recipe calls for Guanaja chocolate from the French brand Valrhona, a premium chocolate manufacturer.

Otherwise, the recipe is a simple, five-ingredient chocolate cake that is pantry and quarantine-friendly — no exotic ingredients or fancy professional baking tool required.

If you don’t have gourmet chocolate in your cupboard, use what you have.

Here’s the recipe:

250g of soft butter at room temperature
180g of sugar
200g eggs
70g sifted flour
250 melted chocolate

Mix the ingredients in the order of appearance and pour into a buttered and floured cake tin. Bake in the oven at 180C for 30 to 35 minutes and leave to cool.

Bon Appetit!
