Chocolate - a fab finale

Before I rave about the decadence, richness and satisfaction of good chocolate, let me thank the medical researchers who have discovered that it is good for us.

I'm not sure they would endorse this chocolate creation of Brian Feirstein, executive chef at Eddie V's, as healthy exactly, but I would bet caviar to hot dogs there wouldn't be a smidgen of it left on their plates.

Thanks to Lindsey Bridges and Chef Brian for sharing this yummy finale from SC Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Chocolate Godiva Cake
Yield - 4 cakes

1/2 lb. dark Godiva chocolate
5 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 oz. sugar
3 oz. butter
1 tsp. Godiva liqueur

Melt chocolate and butter. In a separate bowl, whisk eggs and sugar, then add vanilla.
Slowly add eggs to chocolate.
Divide batter into 4 lightly buttered and floured 8-oz. ramekins and bake at 375 degrees approximately 18 minutes.
Turn out each ramekin into a soup bowl and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Then add an hour to tomorrow's workout routine.
