Serves 4

1 stick butter

9 oz dark chocolate, chopped

1⁄2 cup sugar

1⁄2 cup light brown sugar

4 eggs

1 teaspoon baking powder

3 tablespoons dark rum

3 tablespoons very strong coffee

whipped cream for serving

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place butter and chocolate in a double boiler and melt together.
  3. Pour the mixture into a large bowl with sugars and mix until dissolved.
  4. Add eggs, baking powder, rum, and coffee. Stir well until smooth.
  5. Pour into 4 well-greased pint jars.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. They will rise up and fall again— they are supposed to fall.
  7. Let them cool slightly.
  8. Serve with whipped cream.


If you don’t care for the taste of rum you can replace it with whiskey.
