So I don't actually have a picture of this recipe completed, sorry about that...you can use your imagination. Another successful baking excursion, this isn't as tough as I though it would be. This recipe was super easy, try it, you won't be sorry!
6 T unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
6 large eggs, yolks and whites separated
1/2 cup sugar
confectioners' sugar for dusting (optional)
Preheat oven to 275. Butter a 9in springform pan. Place butter and chocolate in a large heatproof bowl, set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water; heat until almost melted. (My bowl was not heatproof, but I was very careful!).
Remove from heat, stir until completely melted and combined. Whisk in yolks.
In another bowl, beat egg whites to soft peaks with an electric mixer on medium-high speed. Gradually add granulated sugar; beat until peaks are stiff and glossy.
Whisk one fourth of whites into chocolate mixture; gently but thoroughly fold mixture into remaining whites. Spread batter in prepared pan; smooth top. Bake until cake pulls away from sides of pan and is just set in the center, 45-50 min. Cool completely on a wire rack.
