Flourless Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free)

Valentine's Day brings thoughts of love...and CHOCOLATE!  Here's a decadent treat:

Flourless Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free)

4 ounces mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup cocoa powder, plus some to dust the pan
3 eggs, plus one egg white, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1.  Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease 8" cake pan, and dust with cocoa.
2.  Melt chocolate and butter in double boiler. 
3.  Stir in remaining ingredients.  Pour into prepared pan.
4.  Bake 30-35 minutes.

I've made this recipe 3 times.  Every time the cake was eaten before I could snap a picture!  If you're making this for company, use a disposable foil pan.  That way you can remove the pan from the cake, rather than the cake from the pan.  Dust with powdered sugar, or sprinkle with mini chocolate chips while warm.  Then spread the chocolate when melted.  No frosting required.
