Pavé Au Chocolat


1 pound high-quality dark chocolate (either chips or shaved)

1 pound butter, cut into small squares

4 liquid ounces espresso

1/4 pound light brown sugar

8 whole eggs

Directions [1] In a large bowl crack the eggs and beat together. Set aside. [2] Over a double boiler, melt all other ingredients until smooth. [3] Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, pour a small amount into the eggs stirring constantly with a whisk. Then pour the rest of the mixture, continually mixing. [4] Pour the batter into 4-5 small loaf pans. Place the loaf pans in a sheet pan with high edges. Create a water bath by filling the hotel pan with about 2 inches of water, or until the water comes up half way on the sides of the loaf pans. [5] Bake at 350 degrees for about 35-40 minutes or until set in the middle. Allow to rest in pan for 10 minutes. Remove pans from water, and cool in refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours. [6] Slice thin and serve over crème anglaise.
