Chocolate Olive Oil Cake (Nigella)

This is another chocolate cake I really really adore as it is butter-free and flourless! Sounds really healthy yah? ^0^ Even my two kids enjoyed this chocolate cake too thus the cake was completely wiped off by the 2nd day!

I've thought made a right choice of using a round base 8" pan :D After unmoulding the cake onto the serving plate, it revealed a rounded edge surface which it looked rather cute :D
