flourless chocolate cake

This is a delicious moist cake perfect to serve for dessert or that special occasion.

Flourless Chocolate Cake
4 eggs
1C caster sugar
200g butter
250g dark chocolate

Preheat oven to 180C.
Separate eggs, add half the sugar to to egg yolks and beat well with a mixer.
In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until fluffy then add remaining sugar gradually, beating until soft peaks form.
Melt chocolate and butter over hot water stirring regularly.
Pour into egg yolk mixture and fold.
Once combined fold in egg whites.
Line a cake tin with greaseproof paper and pour in mixture (I used a springform pan with paper on the bottom and greased the sides)
Bake for 40 minutes in the lower third of your oven. 
This cake will collapse on cooling because it has no flour

I dusted with cocoa powder and icing sugar, can be served with whipped cream for a special occasion.
