  1. Melt butter with chocolate over low heat, stirring constantly.
  2. Separate egg whites from yolks. Beat yolks with sugar until a thick, stable foam is formed – approximately 5 minutes; precise timing is crucial.
  3. Gently mix the beaten yolks with the cooled chocolate mixture.
    In a separate bowl, beat egg whites with lemon juice until soft peaks form. This step is crucial, as stiff egg whites won’t blend smoothly into the chocolate mixture.
  4. Carefully fold in 1 spoonful of beaten egg whites at a time into the chocolate batter using a spatula, making bottom-to-top movements. Do not use a mixer.
  5. Grease the sides and bottom of a removable-form pan with butter and dust with flour. Pour the batter into the pan, smoothing it out.
  6. If the baking pan is not removable, line it with foil for easier removal of the cake.
  7. Bake in a preheated oven at 150°C (about 300°F) for only 35-40 minutes. If baked longer, the cake will turn into a regular sponge cake.
  8. After the specified time, the truffle will be “trembling,” especially in the center. This is intentional; after a night in the refrigerator, it will reach the desired density.
  9. Allow the cake to cool completely in the pan before refrigerating overnight. When slicing, use a hot knife for smooth pieces. The truffle cake freezes beautifully.
