Recipe for future reference

18 oz chopped bittersweet chocolate
2 sticks unsalted butter
6 eggs
2 tbsp instant espresso coffee powder

Preheat overn to 425 F, grease 9 inch round cake pan, line bottom with parchment paper

Combine 16 oz of the chocolate with the butter. Heat in microave until melted, 1.5-2.5 minutes. Stir halfway through.
Beat eggs with electric mixer on high speed until thickened and lemon colored, 5-7 minutes. Fold into chocolate mixture 1/3 at a time; fold in espresso powder

Pour batter in pan. Set in another larger pan and add water to reach 1/3 of height of cake pan. Bake 5 minutes. Cover with foil, bake 10 minutes longer. Remove cake pan from water bath, uncover, and let cool on cake rack 45 minutes. Then refrigerate at least 6 hours.

Optional frosting: 1 cup heavy cream (beaten until whipped), then fold in 1/4 cup sour cream and 1 tsp vanilla extract; original recipe also calls for 2 tsp powdered sugar and nuts to put on top. Frost one hour before serving, drizzle remainder of chocolate (melted) over the top.

Happy New Year to you as well. Unfortunately, elandria isn't someone I keep in touch with, so I don't have any information on her.
