  1. Preheat oven to 350. Melt chocolate in a double boiler and then set aside to cool.
  2. Creme room temperature butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the eggs one at a time until well blended.
  5. Mix in the chocolate, cardamon and orange zest, just until combined.
  6. Pour into a lightly buttered 8" pan, I like to use a tart pan to give it a bit of an elegant look.
  7. Bake for 25 - 30 minutes, until set, it will not jiggle at all.
  8. Let cool for about 10 minutes before removing from pan.
  9. I like to serve a sliver of the cake with fresh berries and either sour cream or creme fraiche that has been sweetened with brown sugar. Serve. Eat
