Prep and cook time: 45 minutes Serves 8
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a double boiler,* melt chocolate with butter. When melted, add maple syrup and whisk. Remove from heat and add whisked eggs. Slowly add the eggs with the chocolate. Add cacao powder sifted through a fine-mesh strainer. Prepare an 8-inch cake pan lined with parchment paper. Pour mixture in and bake for 20-25 minutes. Cool completely and frost with icing of your choice or top it with our Chocolate Acai Sauce!
*If you don't have a double boiler, you can fill a medium sauce pan with water, a quarter of the way, and heat to boiling. Set a stainless steel bowl on top of boiling water.
