Source: Simone Beck, Simcas cuisine (Note: this is for an 8-1/2 inch pan. I sometimes add 50% to the ingredients and use a larger pan.) Method: Preheat oven to 375. Cut a round of waxed paper to fit the bottom of the cake pan, butter one side, and lay in the pan with buttered side up. Butter sides of pan and flour both bottom and sides. (Note: I recomment using a springform pan if you have a tight one. Steep the raisins (or whatever) in the whiskey (or whatever). Melt the chocolate or butter, with 3 tbsp. water, in a double boiler (or in the microwave). Beat egg yolks with sugar until pale, creamy yellow. Then add choclate mixture, flour, almonds, and raisin mixture (in that order). Whip egg whites with pinch salt till stiff but not dry, then fold with chocolate mixture. Pour into cake pan. Bake in middle of oven 20 minutes. (I have never had this cake take less than 30 minutes and the larger version often requires an hour.) The outside should be firm, but the middle still moist. A fter cooling for several hours or overnight, frost. (To make frosting, melt chocolate, add sugar, then stir in butter bit by bit.) The cake is better the second day.
