This is a copy from Georges Blanc:
"I begged our maitre'd for the recipe. The one I have is autographed by the head chef on the Pride.... good luck with conversions.
For ten Portion:
375g Black Chocolate 64% (very important not to use other types of choc)
375g Butter (not margarine)
8ea Egg yolk
7ea egg whites
250g sugar
170g sifted flour
-Melt the chocolate and the butter together until 64 Celsius
-Blend the egg yolks, egg whites and the sugar together then add the butter-chocolate mixture
add the flour, using a wisk
Put it in the forms (prepare with butter and flour) and leave it for one day in the fridge
bake directly in the oven at 200celsius for 8 minutes"

And this is a recipe from Pamela Lanier's Bed and Breakfast:
Warm Chocolate Melting Cake
Ingredients:
Fondant Cake:
6 oz. Bittersweet Chocolate
3 1/2 oz. Butter, Room Temperature
2 Eggs and 2 Yolks, Room Temperature
3 1/2 oz. Sugar
1 1/2 oz. Flour, Sifted

Instructions:
Melt the chocolate & butter in a double boiler. Whip the eggs, yolks, & sugar to the ribbon. (pale yellow). Sift the flour into the eggs and fold. Then fold in the chocolate. Don't over the work!! Butter ramikins and parchment paper and dust with cocoa powder. Butter ramikins 3/4 full with the batter. Bake in a 350 oven for about 10 minutes. Let cool for a minute or so then unmold.

*Serve warm with coffee ice cream.

So for the home, roughly:
1 lb. butter
1 lb. chocolate
10 eggs
3/4 lb. sugar
lb. flour

Just winging it, but that is what I see.

You're awesome, Ken. You can't go wrong with Paula Deen and anything she makes. Just wondering which one to try first. Decisions, decisions.

Paula has never been known to shy away from the butter and eggs in her recipes!

For the diabetics out there, can you substitute Sweet N Low, and if so, what's the conversion?

Dave, you're right. No low calorie recipes with Paula Deen. Very southern and delicious.

G.C., have you tried Splenda for baking? Conversions are right on the package.

Nope; don't have the need to substitute; was just asking for the less fortunate out there.

A'ndrea,
I have tried using Splenda for baking but it just doesn't seem to work for me. I tried to shy away from sugar but, I am afraid, my substitutions have not been a raving success. Sugar, Land o' Lakes Sweet Cream Salted Butter, and Eggs are my weapons of choice.
