Chocolate Birthday cake

Happy Birthday (by Christ tell)
Ok the rule is, if you make a Birthday cake, forget diet, and make it as chocolaty as you can.
Beyond that, I found this great recipe that fits the bill for a guy, and is moist, flavorsome, easy, quick to make. Humm yes indeed, this is the perfect cake! So yes how lucky are you, I am sharing the magic Birthday cake recipe with you:
Birthday slices (by Christ tell)

-200g plain dark chocolate
-125g soften butter -100g sugar
-50g flour (use soya flour for coeliacs)
-3 eggs

In a pan, place the chocolate broken into pieces with a tblspn of water, and a 25g of the butter.Let it melt on low heat.

In a bowl, mix the eggs with the sugar till the mix whitens, add the soften butter, mix well.

Add the flour, mix well, then add the chocolate.

I use silicon moulds now so no buttering and flouring, but do so if you use an old fashion mould.
Pour the mix in the mould, place in oven at 150degC for 25-30 minutes.

Let the cake cool down, take it off the mould, decorate it, and there you are, a very successful chocolate cake! Easy no?

It doesn't even have to be a bday to throw caution to the wind...especially if it's chocolate.
