Flourless Chocolate Truffle Cake

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by KitchenManiac

A wonderful recipe from donna hay's cookbook "flavours". Doesn't take long to make, but extremely rich. Your eyes are going to be tired from rolling to the back of your head. :P

I don't think "rich" is a strong enough word for this! Was worried the chocolate and egg mixture were not going to take, however it does in the end, just takes a little time. My muffin pans must be small as I got 12 serves - and I don't think we could have handled a larger serve of these anyway. Very chocolatey - very rich and a very once in a while treat. Thanks!
