  • 3/4 cup grass-fed butter cut into small pieces, plus more for greasing the pan
  • 12 ounces bittersweet chocolate chopped
  • 6 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • Pinch sea salt
  • cocoa powder for dusting
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°
  2. Lightly butter the bottom and side of a 9-inch springform pan.
  3. Combine the chocolate and butter in a glass bowl. Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water (do not let the bowl touch the water) and stir until the chocolate is shiny and fully incorporated with the butter.
  4. Set aside to cool.
  5. Combine the eggs, coconut sugar, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Beat with a mixer on medium-high until pale and thick, 5 to 8 minutes.

  6. Gently mix the melted chocolate mixture into the egg mixture until just combined with a balloon whisk, then gently mix in the rest.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until the top is no longer shiny a toothpick comes out with only a few crumbs, about 35 to 45 minutes.
  8. Transfer to a rack and let cool completely in the pan.
  9. Remove the springform ring and transfer to a platter; dust with cocoa powder.

Recipe Notes

You can make a quick raspberry sauce by combining a pint of raspberries with about a 1/4 cup of water, and about 2-3 tablespoons of sugar. Simmer over medium for about 10 minutes then either blend with an immersion blender, food processor, or blender. If the sauce is too thick add a little more water. If it's not sweet enough add a little more sugar. It really is fool proof.
