Chocolate Valentino

A flourless chocolate cake from "Have your Cake and Eat it Too" A really wonderful cake. Asbasic ingredients here are chocolate, sugar and eggs, the cake would be a little wobbly when remove from the oven. At first the cake looks really great, tall and handsome and after cooling for about 15 mins, it sink to the height before it was sent to the oven. Remember to only remove the cake from the tin when it is cool Even after 15 mins, the cake is still quite wobbly, Hence I decided to send it to the fridge and have it sat there overnight. By the time, the cake is a little harden but after a thawing period, the cake is absolutely delightful. It is just like eating chocolate but in a cake. Especially remarkable if eaten with vanilla ice-cream. Thank you "Have your Cake and Eat it Too" for posting such a wonderful recipe.
