Flourless Chocolate Torte #1

This is a flourless chocolate torte my mother made from one of my recipe books. I finished it off with a dark chocolate ganache, tuxedo strawberries, and some chocolate kisses. The cake was delicious, rich, dense, and chocolaty; but it didn't hold up well. Maybe it should have been refrigerated, or baked longer, I don't know; but bowls and spoons worked better for this cake than plates and forks.

1 cup butter
2 cups chocolate
5 large eggs
1 1/3 cups granulated (white) sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325F. Grease a 9-inch round springform pan.
Melt together the butter and chocolate.
Beat the eggs and sugar until meringue-like consistency.
Fold all together.
Bake for 30 minutes until top is dry and puffed and cake is set.
