Divine Dark Chocolate Cake with Aurélie

June 12, 2020

With a self-proclaimed sweet tooth, I may be biased when I ask, “Is there anything more divine than a chocolate dessert?” Short answer, no! Every birthday growing up there was never any question or hesitation for my special celebratory treat: chocolate cake! Warm inviting cake with decadent melty, chocolate-y flavors made it a no-brainer every time.

Aurélie Perrier, Development Director at APA, hits the nail on the head with this quick and easy chocolate cake: a more bitter dark chocolate balances the sugar so the cake is not too sweet. Perfect for pairing with fresh berries and whipped cream, this rich dessert is a great way to end a meal (or celebrate a birthday)!


  • 1 c. dark chocolate
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 heaping spoonful of flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 6.5 Tbsp. sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350o F and butter a loaf pan.
  2. Break chocolate into smaller pieces into a pot and melt with the butter and salt over low heat.
  3. In a separate bowl, add eggs and sugar, and mix for about one minute.
  4. Once fully melted, combine one heaping spoonful of flour into the chocolate mixture.
  5. Add the chocolate mixture to the bowl with the sugar and eggs and combine. Add to your buttered baking pan.
  6. Cook for about 15 minutes for a gooey center.
