                         chocolate dough:
    1      cup           unbleached all-purpose flour
    2      tablespoons   cocoa powder
      1/4  cup           sugar
    1      pinch         salt
      1/2  teaspoon      baking powder
    4      tablespoons   unsalted butter
    1      large         egg
                         chocolate filling:
      1/3  cup           water
      1/3  cup           sugar
      1/2  stick         unsalted butter
    6      ounces        semisweet chocolate
    3      large         eggs
    1      teaspoon      ground cinnamon
      1/2  teaspoon      ground cloves
 
 For the dough: Place flour in a mixing bowl and sift the cocoa powder
 over it. Stir in the sugar, salt and baking powder. Rub in the butter
 finely, leaving the mixture cool and powdery. Beat the egg and stir it
 into the dough. Press the dough together and wrap and chill it.
 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees and set rack in the lower third of oven.
 On a floured surface, roll the dough and line a buttered 10-inch tart
 pan. Set aside while preparing filling.
 
 In a saucepan, over medium heat, bring sugar and water to a boil. Add
 butter and continue heating to melt butter. Off heat whisk in finely
 cut chocolate. Whisk eggs with spices, then whisk in chocolate
 mixture. Pour into tart shell.
 
 Bake for about 30 minutes, until well risen and firm. Cool on a rack.
 Unmold tart and serve with sweetened whipped cream.
