Flourless Chocolate Cake - Easy

8 oz. bittersweet chocolate
2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
6 eggs
1 c. unsweetened cocoa powder

-Preheat oven to 350.
-In a double boiler - melt the chocolate and butter together. Remove from heat and add sugar, eggs (1 at a time) and then cocoa (about a tbsp. at a time).
-Place in a greased spring form pan and bake for 35-40 minutes.

*I have used Ghirardelli and Endangered Species chocolate for this recipe, but any type of GF chocolate is okay.
*Optional toppings: fresh berries, cool whip, stripes of melted white chocolate.

This recipe is very simple and extremely yummy - it is very rich and I would definitely have milk on hand (although it is good with coffee as well).

*Hey lady - I don't have a double broiler - what do I do? Why, I'm glad you asked. Just use 2 saucepans that fit on top of each other, like the picture. Make sure you do not fill the bottom saucepan with water, you'll only need to put it about a 3rd of the way up - you do not want it to come close to the saucepan on top.
