Chocolate Decadence

1 pound dark chocolate
5 ounces butter

Melt butter and add chocolate. Chocolate chips will also work in this recipe.

4 eggs
1 T. sugar
1 T. flour

Beat eggs with sugar until sugar is dissolved and eggs have tripled in volume. This will take about 8-10 minutes. Fold in the flour. Add chocolate mix. Fold this in, trying not to lose the volume created when you beat the eggs. (Note: add 1/4 of the egg mixture to the chocolate and stir it in. Then lightly fold the remaining egg mixture into the chocolate.)

Prepare a 9 inch pan by cutting a round of wax paper to fit in the bottom of the pan. Grease lightly and fit paper on bottom of pan. Pour batter into pan and bake at 425° F. for 15 minutes. Center will be just beginning to set. Let cool completely in pan.

To serve remove from pan and remove wax paper. Place cake on serving dish. Top with chocolate sauce, whipped cream and chocolate shavings after cutting, if doing individual servings. Otherwise, I would top with the chocolate shavings and serve the chocolate sauce and whipped cream on the side.
