Flourless Chocolate Cake (Red Star Restaurant)

1 1/4 lbs chocolate (shaved/chopped)
1/3 C cream
3/4 lbs butter
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C cocoa
9 eggs

Melt butter with cream until hot. Pour over shaved chocolate, mix until melted. Add cocoa; mix well. Temper in eggs (I think that means mix in one at a time by hand). Bake in baine marie (water bath) at 325 degree oven about 30 minutes until skewer comes out mostly clean (I baked it in a springform round pan it took a LONG time to bake--maybe 1 1/2 to 2 hours. The time above is if you're making small, individual cakes).
