French Chocolate Cake



Over the years, my preferences have changed, as I learn and experience new things, especially when it comes to food.  Now that I am living in France, there is no shortage of ingredients and inspiration, and although there are so many uniquely French recipes like madeleines and tarte tatin, however, my latest obsession is chocolate cake!

Luckily, I found the French Chocolate Cake recipe, though Pinterest, on and it is perfect for any occasion.  This chocolate cake is light yet has a deep chocolate flavour that lingers on the palate. It’s moist like a flourless cake, and not too sweet to enjoy a small slice for petite déjeuner au café 😉

French Chocolate Cake


4.4 oz. (125g) baking chocolate

1/2 c (125g) butter

3 tblsp milk

2/3 c (125g) sugar

2 eggs – room temperature, separate whites and yolks

2 tblsp flour

pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and grease a 9″ (23 cm) spring form.
  2. In a saucepan melt the chocolate with the milk on low heat. Add the butter and allow to melt. Stir as needed – I use a whisk.
  3. Remove the saucepan from the heat and then add the sugar, stirring until blended. Add the yolks one at a time, stirring with each addition. Sift in the flour and stir well.
  4. Whisk the whites with a pinch of salt until soft peaks form. Carefully fold in the chocolate mixture in two or three additions.
         baked in ramekins, and muffin tins and rectangular pyrex dishes – adjusting the
         baking time.
Bon appetit!!
