Chocolate Cake with Coffee Syrup

 Let's face it, chocolate cake does it for a lot of people, and it does for us!!!! So how about you??

Butter - 1/2 cup
Semi Sweet Chocolate - 225gms, broken into pieces
Black Coffee - 1tbs
Eggs - 4
Egg Yolks - 2
Caster Sugar - 1/2cup, generous
All Purpose Flour - 1/3 cup
Ground Cinnamon - 2tsp
Ground Almonds - 1/2cup, scant
Strong Black Coffee - 1 1/4 cup
Caster Sugar - 1/2 cup
Cinnamon Stick - 1

Grease and line an 8 inch round cake pan. Place the chocolate and coffee into a heat proof bowl and set over a pan of simmering water until just melted. Stir to blend and allow to cool slightly. Into a mixing bowl place the eggs, egg yolks and sugar and whisk until the mixture is  pale and thick. Soft the flour and cinnamon powder into the egg mixture. Add the almonds and the chocolate mixture and fold into the mixture. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in a preheated oven for about 35minutes till the skewer inserted comes out clean. Place the inverted cake onto a serving plate.
To make the syrup place the coffee and sugar and cinnamon in a heavy based saucepan. Gently heat over a low flame and allow the sugar to dissolve. Boil the mixture vigorously for about 5 minutes till the sauce reduces and starts to thicken. Prick the cake with a toothpick and drizzle half the warm syrup over. Cut the cake into wedges and serve with some more sauce poured over.
