Ingredients

    4 Eggland's Best Eggs (large)
    8 ounces 53% cacao dark baking chocolate, coarsely chopped
    3 tablespoons butter, cubed
    1/3 cup plus 1/4 cup sugar, divided
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1 container (2 1/2 ounces) prune baby food
    1 teaspoon dark baking cocoa or baking cocoa
    1/2 teaspoon confectioners' sugar


Directions

Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt chocolate and butter over low heat, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; cool slightly.

Coat a 9-in. springform pan with cooking spray. Place pan on a baking sheet; set aside.

In a large bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Gradually add 1/3 cup sugar and vanilla, beating until thick and lemon-colored. Beat in baby food and chocolate mixture.

Beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, on high until stiff glossy peaks form; fold into batter.

Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350℉ for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with moist crumbs. Cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides of pan. Cool completely.

Sprinkle with cocoa and confectioners' sugar. Refrigerate leftovers.
