Gooey Chocolate Cake (recipe, too!)

Week 9, recipe 8 ~ Gooey Chocolate Cake found on page 108

 The first thing that came to my mind was from the movie "Back When We Were Grownups"....Poppy was trying to nicely say that he did not want Biddy to make his birthday cake- so he said: 
"I don't feel that cakes are Biddy's strong point."

Unforgettable is the one word that I would use to describe this cake!    
A delicious, oozy, rich, sticky, dark chocolaty, messy, flour-less-almond cake!

 We declared it done at 45 minutes, and after the un-molding it stood tall for maybe 30 seconds.  I dumped the frosting on top, and the poor guy's legs began to bow...and then just as I was desperately trying to finish the frosting, one side had an avalanche/landslide/blowout...sigh...Mom and I worked fast and used our hands and fingers, scraping and eating what would have otherwise been lost. 

As soon as the cake was "stable", we popped it in the freezer to set the frosting in a hurry, and then moved it to the fridge to finish setting up.  =)

~This is so far the only cake that I would say should have been baked a little longer (maybe 3-5min) than Ms. Mayhew had said...
~I think that I may have mastered "folding in the egg whites"! =)
~Twas a Birthday Cake for Mom!
~I would try this one again...yes, I would for sure.
~Serve topped with Sour Cream  =)
~I used Ghiardelli 60% dark chocolate chips in the cake- it was perfect!
~The frosting was really good- like the filling of a truffle or bon-bon.

It was yummy! See on the right that it exploded and oozed off the plate?! We got all those globs, don't worry!
