"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Directions:
Preheat oven to 220*. Grease and line the base of a 20cm round spring form cake pan with non-stick baking pan.
Melt the chocolate, golden syrup and butter in a bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly.
Place eggs and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer or use an electric hand beater and beat on high for 10 minutes until very thick and pale. Gently fold in the flour then fold in the chocolate mixture until combined. Pour into the cake pan and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 12 minutes. Remove from oven and run a knife around the edge of the cake. Remove collar from cake pan and transfer the cake to the fridge for 1 hour to cool [ this step is important as it sets the middle of the cake].
Meanwhile, to make the coffee marscapone, dissolve coffee in 1 tablespoon of boiling water and set aside to cool. Beat together the marscapone, coffee and sugar in a bowl until stiff.
To make the chocolate leaf, brush non - toxic leaves with the melted chocolate. When cool, peel the leaf.
Slice the cake and serve with a dollop of marscapone, a choclate leaf on top and scoop of sorbet on the side.
