"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

6 jumbo eggs

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided (1 cup for batter and 1/4

sugar. Stir in the warm chocolate mixture and cool to room
