  3. In another bowl, beat eggs and sugar with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 5 minutes; mixture should be light, airy and pale yellow. Beat in vanilla. Fold egg mixture into chocolate mixture one-third at a time until well combined. Spoon batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake for 17 to 20 minutes or until set. Cool in pan for 30 minutes; unmold onto a platter. Meanwhile, for ganache, bring cream to just boiling in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. (This will happen quickly.) Remove from heat. Add 11/2 ounces chocolate, but do not stir. Let stand 5 minutes. Add a pinch of Fleur de Sel. Stir until smooth. Spread ganache on cooled cake.
