Mr. no flour Scandinavian chocolate cake

This cake must be one of the simplest to make. And cheap as well. But the reward is sooo not thin or light. 
It's a Swedish chokladkladdkaka-smudgy chocolate cake. Yes, "kaka" stands for "cake" in Swedish. But You have to pronounce it differently...
Oh,  and no flour!
The cake is very filling, so these thin pieces are just perfect!

Here is the recipe:
10 portions:

150 g  butter
300 ml sugar
100 ml cocoa
2 tea spoons of vanilla sugar
2 eggs

The process

Heat up the stove to 175 degrees Celsius.
Carefully melt the butter and remove from the stove.
Blend in sugar, cocoa and vanilla sugar.
Beat the eggs and add them to the butter one by one. Mix it until it's even.
Grease a round  (c:a 24 cm in diameter) baking form with a piece of butter.
Pour the batter into the form and bake it in the lower part of the oven.
Let it bake for  20 minutes -the cake will turn out loose (my favorite!). If You want a stiffer version-let it stay in the oven for a few minutes longer.

Let the cake cool down. And later let it stay in the fridge for a while. It gets stiffer when cooler.

Serve it with whipped cream and a slice of orange.
Or ice cream, or raspberry jam...

If You'd like a more luxurious cake, melt dark chocolate instead of cocoa. You can even add some coffee to the batter!
