INGREDIENTS
  •  3/4 cup (3 ounces) cocoa powder (Dutch-process or regular; dark cocoa powder works great here)
  •  1/2 cup (2.25 ounces) all-purpose flour
  •  1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  5 large eggs (9 ounces)
  •  1 3/4 cups (13 ounces) granulated sugar
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  •  2 sticks (16 tablespoons, 8 ounces) butter, melted
  •  Ice cream, for serving

INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 2-quart baking dish (see note above) with nonstick cooking spray or butter.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, flour and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer (or in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment), beat the eggs and sugar on medium speed for 5-7 minutes until very thick and light yellow in color. Don't short the time on this step - it's essential for the texture of the dessert.
  4. Add the vanilla and flour/cocoa mixture and mix on low speed until just combined and no dry streaks remain. With the mixer on low, carefully add the melted butter and mix until just combined.
