3 (3 ounce) Ghirardelli bittersweet chocolate bar, chopped

1 cup sugar

6 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 tablespoons expresso coffee

While the chocolate is melting beat together the eggs, sugar, vanilla and coffee together for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, slowly pour in the melted chocolate. Beat for one minutes. Scrape down the sides and add 1/4 cup of cocoa powder and continue mixing till well combined. Pour the cake batter into the cake pan and bake for 40-45 minutes. Remove from oven and allow it to cool for 30 minutes before inverting onto a plate.
