Ingredients:  
1 lb. extra bittersweet chocolate
1 c. (2 sticks) unsalted butter
c. good marmalade
6 large eggs
Boiling water

Directions:
Preheat the oven to 425. Butter an 8-inch springform pan and line it with parchment paper. Wrap the pan with aluminum foil. Melt the chocolate and butter together in a double boiler. Stir in marmalade. Meanwhile, beat the eggs until they triple in volume. (This is easier if the eggs are warm; you can put them in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water and beat them with a hand beater.) Fold half the eggs into the chocolate with a whisk; then fold in the other half. Pour the batter into the springform pan, and put the pan into a larger cake pan. Pour boiling water into the larger pan to a depth of 1 inch. Bake for 5 minutes. Cover the cake loosely with aluminum foil and bake for another 10 minutes. Let the cake cool on a rack, and then cover and chill in the refrigerator. Unmold the cake and serve with whipped cream made with 1 tbsp. Grand Marnier.
