    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch cake pan with a piece of buttered waxed paper or baking parchment, then spread the sides evenly with butter.
    2. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan set over low heat, melt 8 ounces of the chocolate with 1 tablespoon of the coffee granules and 1/4 cup kirsch, stirring until smooth. Off heat stir in the egg yolks, one at a time, then return the pan to the heat and stir the mixture briefly until the yolks are warmed and have thickened the chocolate slightly. Off heat again, beat in the butter by tablespoons, stirring until smooth. Stir in the flour.
    3. Beat the egg whites with the pinch of salt until they form soft peaks.
