Flourless mini chocolate cakes

There is no particular reason as to why I made these, except that I was at home, had the urge to bake and they are chocolate.

Chocolatey they are, moist rich delis-ish-ness. We ate them for afternoon tea with a cup of coffee but I think that they would be amazing warmed and served with vanilla-bean ice cream YUM 🙂

I think I might have to make another batch, and some home made vanilla-bean ice cream. Shop brought ice cream wouldn’t do this chocolatey delis-ish-ness any justice.
