It’s a kind of airy brownie served in big slabs, a stiffened foam of chocolate, butter, eggs and sugar that collapses like a sigh in your mouth, neither overly rich nor gooey nor dank the way flourless chocolate cakes always are.

Not overly sweet but sweet enough to contrast well with coffee, the cake has a lingering, rich chocolate aftertaste…
