This is almost like a pudding! Serve it warm. If you choose serve it with whipped cream and a thick & gooey chocolate sauce. I haven't included a frosting as all this cake needs is a dusting with confectioners' sugar or if you prefer, cocoa powder. Diana's Desserts

- Beat the eggs lightly, then add to cooled chocolate mixture.
