For the cake:

  • 3/4 Cups butter, such as Country Crock® spread
  • 6 squares (one ounce each) bittersweet chocolate
  • 4 large eggs, separated
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3/4 Cups sugar
  • 1/3 Cup all-purpose flour

For the glaze:

  • 5 Tablespoons butter, such as Country Crock® spread

Directions

For the cake:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a 9-inch round cake pan, then line with parchment or waxed paper; set aside.

Melt 3/4 cup Country Crock® Spread with chocolate in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally; set aside to cool slightly. Beat egg whites with salt in medium bowl with electric mixer until stiff peaks form; set aside.

Beat egg yolks with sugar in medium bowl with electric mixer until light, about 2 minutes. While beating, slowly add chocolate mixture until blended. Beat in flour. Fold in egg white mixture with spatula just until blended. Pour into prepared pan.

Bake 35 minutes. (Note: Toothpick inserted in center will come out with moist crumbs.) Run knife around rim of cake to loosen cake from sides of pan; cool 15 minutes on wire rack. Remove cake from pan and cool completely.
