Serenity Chocolate Cake

It is wonderful.
Flour less Chocolate Cake...it is wonderful.  I will have to post pictures later...mainly I need to upload, and secondly, I am sitting in my chair not wanting to connect the camera.

Yes, truth.

8 oz dark/semi-sweet chocolate
2 sticks butter (Yes, real butter, sweet cream no salt added!) softened, at room temperature
4 eggs (at room temperature)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup Grand Marnier
6 tablespoons corn starch

Melt chocolate, and set aside.  Beat butter until fluffy, add cooled-melted chocolate.
In another bowl, beat eggs, slowly add sugar.  Beat 6-8 minutes or until thick.  These should be the same thickness.
Add the chocolate mixture to the egg mixture.  Beat in Grand Marnier.  Sift in corn starch.
Pour into a greased 9" spring form.  Cover with buttered parchment.  Put in shallow dish, fill 1/2 way with near boiling water.  (water bath)
Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.  Remove from water bath, let cool 15 minutes.  Invert onto a serving plate.  Let stand 30 minutes and then remove pan.
Top with Ganache.
Recipe for the Ganache to come soon.  =)
