Rated 5 stars out of 5
Note to my friends this is an incredible recipe, I like to serve it with a good vanilla bean ice cream, or whipped cream.  I often add a liqueur  to it, one or 2 tablespoons of amaretto, macadamia nut liqueur, Frangelico, or Kahlua, depending on my mood, triple sec or Cointreau would also be an awesome touch.  Or you could make a nice whipped cream including one of these liqueurs to top it with and put a few fresh berries (raspberry, strawberry or blackberry as a garnish with a few chocolate shavings and/or chopped nuts).  Enjoy ^^!

Ingredients
8 ounces plus 6 tablespoons butter
10 ounces bittersweet chocolate
6 yolks
6 eggs
3 cups powdered sugar
1 cup flour
Directions
Melt the chocolate and butter together. Cool slightly. Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, whisk together the yolks and eggs then mix in the powdered sugar. Whisk this into the chocolate mixture then whisk in the flour. Fill 12 greased 4-ounce foil tins with the batter and refrigerate until ready to bake, or bake immediately. Bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven for 5 to 6 minutes from cold, or 4 to 5 minutes from room temperature. Turn out of tins immediately onto the plate.

Optional Garnitures:
White Chocolate Ganache:
2 cups heavy cream
8 ounces white chocolate, chopped
Heat the cream in a saucepan until boiling. Place the chopped chocolate in a bowl. Whisking well, pour the hot cream over the chocolate to melt it. Cover and chill overnight. The next day, whip it up like whipped cream until soft peaks. Place a dollop of it on the cake before serving.
