Rich Chocolate and Macadamia nut Cake: Gooey delicious chocolate cake!

Sometime I dream about chocolate, I know that it's weird, but I have to admit it ^^. Chocolate is my weak point too, well who can resist it, esp. when it's so rich in chocolate taste too.

 I found the recipe in ......................, the book that after reading the title, I needed it, haha. Because caramel and chocolate are used a lot in my baking, if you ever notice ^^. Mostly the caramel is for my sister and chocolate is for me, so with this book, we're both happy, hehe. 
Today I choose to make the cake for myself, and when I said that you should know that it's chocolate cake. This cake is very rich in chocolate taste, it contains a lot of chocolate, and I mean a lot, haha, for this small recipe. The cake is a kind of fallen chocolate cake, it contains no flour (but have only a bit of cocoa powder). It will sink a bit (or much depend on the folding, heating or resting ), ^^, so you don't have to be worried at all, haha. 
I bake it for 30 minutes and the cake still very soft and gooey inside, you can bake longer to get drier cake, but for me this is the one that I want.
Serve this delicious cake with vanilla ice cream on a lazy afternoon, and you will have a good afternoon sweet dream (like me ^^).
