4 eggs - be a good person and get cage free

zest from 2 oranges
Absinthe Orange Deliciousness
Heat oven up to 350˚. Cream that butter. Cream it real good.
While you are doing that, melt chocolate in a double broiler and let cool after it's fully melted.
Back to the butter. Add in the sugar and continue to beat it until fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time, making sure they are well blended before adding the next.
Mix 1/2 of the zest into the batter. Fold the melted chocolate in, gently. Gently we said.
Spoon into lightly buttered 8" pan, or 4 - 4" springform pans.
Bake 20-25 min for 8" pan or 15-20 min for 4" pans, or until set. (Center won't jiggle)
Let cool, remove the pan(s) and serve with a generous pour of Deliciousness. This is what takes this over the top. Garnish with remaining zest.
