Gateaux Chocolat: Rich chocolate cake

 I don't know how many chocolate cake recipes that you need in your life, but I think a lot of it will be great!

 Different style, different texture and different taste, each recipe has their own personality. This rich chocolate cake is very good for chocolate lover ^^ (ME!!!!), it's rich with chocolate both from cocoa powder and chocolate. It contains no flour too, so it's a great choice for people who is allergic to gluten. 
It's very easy to make, no need to worry about the fallen cake, it will fall anyway, hehe. 
Because the cake will be served chilled, you can prepare it the day ahead. Serve it with sweetened whipped cream is a good idea, fresh berries will add lovely tangy taste to the cake, if you don't have fresh fruit, fruit sauce is a good substitute too.  
I use 68% dark chocolate for this cake, but you can choose from 50-70% it depends on your taste ^^, but with more chocolate percentage, the texture of the cake will be drier too. 
Serve it with any hot drink that you like, tea, coffee or even hot chocolate, and have a happy chocolate day.

You can use dark chocolate, there are many percentage of the chocolate to choose from but it's not an unsweetened chocolate. Milk chocolate will make the cake too sweet, ^^.
