Okay, I'm back . . .

but ONLY for recipes people! And only if they're really good.

So, chocolate grandmarnier cake.

Boil 1/2 c. water and 1/2 c. sugar and add 1 stick of butter cut into ten pieces until it dissolves. Take off the heat then add 12 oz. bittersweet chocolate cut up into 1/2 inch pieces. Let sit 5 minutes then whisk till the chocolate mix is smooth.

Meanwhile, beat up 6 large eggs, whisking them with the grated zest of one orange and 2 T. grand marnier liquor.

Whisk the chocolate into the egg mix until blended.

Butter an 8 inch cake pan. Put wax paper on the bottom and butter it.

Pour the batter into the pan and bake in a water bath at 350 for 40 minutes.

Cool on a rack, invert, and serve with coffee ice cream.
