Olivia's Flourless Chocolate Birthday Cake

So I gave the accountant the camera for this blog!(I was exhausted at 1030pm at night as you can tell from the pictures!) 
 I wanted to give Olivia birthday cake that was not terrible for her so while perusing recipes on the internet I came across this one from the whole foods website. It is ALL chocolate. Incredibly rich and delicious with a cup of good coffee. Gluten but not dairy free, sweetened with honey and raw sugar. Don't pass this one up!

8 ounces of semi or bitter sweet chocolate (I used organic chocolate chips)
1 cup of organic butter
1 and 1/4 of organic raw sugar
6 organic eggs
1 cup of organic unsweetened cocoa powder

4 ounces of bitter sweet chocolate
3 Tablespoons of organic butter
1 Tablespoon of organic milk
1 Tablespoon of honey
1/4 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
You will need a 9 inch spring form pan. Oil it ( I used coconut oil, worked well) and line the bottom with
parchment paper.

On the stove top melt 8 ounces of chocolate and 1 cup of butter together. Stir often until well blended. Remove from heat. Transfer to a large bowl. Stir in sugar. Then whisk in eggs one at a time. Sift cocoa into bowl. Mix well. Place in springform pan. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes. Cake should be just firm in center. Let cool 10 minutes then remove edges of springform pan.
Let cool completly.
When cake has cooled, make glaze as follows:

In a saucepan on the stove top place remaining chocolate, and butter. Melt and stir together. When melted remove from heat and stir in milk, honey and vanilla extract. Let glaze cool for 3-5 minutes. Ice cake!

 Serve the cake...
 Eat the cake...Enjoy!
