Gradually add sugar, whisking until mixture becomes thick and light in color. When chocolate is almost melted, remove from heat and stir until completely melted and satiny in appearance. Gradually whisk chocolate into egg mixture. Stir with a wooden spoon to incorporate. Sift flour, baking powder and salt directly into chocolate mixture.
