And this is a recipe from Pamela Lanier's Bed and Breakfast:

10 ea Eggs Whole
4 oz Sugar granulated
5.5 oz Flour H &R
Melt the chocolate & butter
Mix the eggs & sugar and whisk for few minutes, add the flour
Add the egg mix to the melted chocolate and mix
Pour the mix in a greased mould.
Bake directly in the oven at 200 C° for 12 minutes
Note: - Please make sure that the eggs are at room temperature and chocolate is warm enough while making the mixture
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.
