Gooey Chocolate Cake

S. started a cookbook series many years ago: a notebook in which we and our guests would write our favourite recipes, and the dishes that were created on the spur of the moment.
This blog has already seen many of them.
Our guests from the house swap left us this wonderful chocolate cake; not difficult to make, and a winner!

125 gr. really dark chocolate;
125 gr. butter;
3 eggs;
100 gr. sugar;
100 gr. flour;
1 tsp. baking powder.

1. Melt chocolate and butter -- let it cool to room temperature;
2. Beat eggs and sugar till pale and thick;
3. Fold in sifted flour and baking powder;
4. Fold in chocolate and butter mixture;
5. Pour into greased (and lined) loose bottom tin;
6. Bake at 220 C. for 12-14 minutes. It should just be set on top;
7. Chill in fridge until completely cold;
8. Carefully turn upside down onto cooking tray and remove baking tin;
9. Put plate on bottom of cake, turn upside down (holding on to plate), dust with icing sugar and serve with whipped cream.

Don't think I put this on my blog for your sake. O no! I want to be able to make it back home, and this is the easiest way to transport it!
