Flourless chocolate cake

Lately I've been really craving the chocolate sin cake from Ruth's Chris but I can't really justify going there just for a piece of cake, especially when I really want more than one piece! The last time (which was the first time) I attempted to bake a flourless chocolate cake it left a lot to be desired. Does anyone have any tried and true recipes? I'm looking for something with that perfect velvety, almost truffle-like texture, preferably with espresso in the recipe. Thanks!

DARK CHOCOLATE MOUSSE CAKE

3 x 100g Bars Green & Black?s Dark 70% Chocolate 275g Caster Sugar 165g Unsalted Butter Pinch of Sea Salt 5 Large Free Range Eggs Icing Sugar 1 Tablespoon Ground Almonds plus extra for dusting the tin

This rich, dense chocolate cake is incredibly easy to make but will always impress. It can be served with whipped cream, cr譥 fraiche, Green & Black?s Organic Vanilla ice cream or simply on its own sliced into small fingers with coffee. It can also be made with Green & Black?s Dark, Milk, White and Maya chocolates either on their own or in a combination. If it is made the day before and then chilled over night it becomes even more dense, fudgey and wicked. The lack of flour in the recipe also makes it suitable for coeliacs.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Preparation time: 10 minutes.
Cooking time: 35-45 minutes.
Use: 20cm or 23cm (8in or 9in) cake tin with removable base or similar-sized tart tin
Serves: 10

1) Preheat the oven to 180?C/350?F/Gas Mark 4.
2) Butter and dust a cake tin with a removable base.
3) Put the first 4 ingredients in a bowl over barely simmering water and allow to melt.
4) Whisk the eggs with the ground almonds and then fold into the chocolate mixture with a spatula off the heat.
5) Pour into the cake tin and bake for between 35 and 40 minutes.
6) Allow to cool, and dust with icing sugar.
