Flourless Chocolate Cake--decadent (no wheat)

This is rich! We had a version of this in Saluda at the Purple Onion. So I had to make it even though it is NOT fat free!! We have not been having eggs or butter.....but once in a while an exception can be made?? Well ...anyways since this is gluten free I wanted to try it.....it is for rare occasions....however the brownie recipe I have on this blog is close in taste and it has no eggs, no butter and no flour!! (the brownie recipe can be found at:
http://nannykimsrecipes.blogspot.com/2008/12/gf-brownies-dairy-free.html


Preheat oven to 375


4 squares of unsweetened Baker's chocolate (it has no milk) (can use semisweet-see note below
1 cup of raw sugar (regular sugar is easier--but I had raw) (use 3/4 cup if using the semisweet chocolate)
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup of cocoa powder
3 eggs
1 tablespoon or so of Hershey's chocolate syrup (omit if using the semisweet)

Microwave the chocolate at 40 percent power until softened. Add butter and continue to microwave until soft. Mix together. Add the sugar mixing well and microwave one more minute. Stir again. Add the cocoa powder--mix well. Add the Hershey's syrup to get it to the right sweetness. Add the eggs, mixing well.

Prepare an eight inch round cake pan with pam. Add parchment paper or wax paper to the bottom and spray with pam. Place the batter in the pan and cook for about 20 minutes or just until the top forms a crust. (DON'T OVER COOK) Remove and cool 5 minutes and then invert on a plate. You can serve this warm or cold . ..with or without more syrup or cocoa powder or powdered sugar or whatever...

Ps. You can use semisweet baker's chocolate and reduce the sugar to 3/4 cup (but some semisweet has milk in it) if you use semisweet you can delete the Hershey syrup
