Chocolate Enigma

chocolate bar
I spent quite a lot on the chocolate ingredients itself ! At least i m still happy with the ganache part, but not the cake ! I m just not satisfy with the ' colour' of the cake, any tips how to make ' darker' colour chocolate cake? plus next time I will use all the yolks, instead of 3 yolks 5 whites . Plus I would omit the choc chip, it is quite not necessary too.

Sis brought to office n share, they like it (probably hungry I suppose) , came home, ask me " Ah Tng my fren ask if you bake 1/2 kg for sale " .. err .. no la .. my cake is not up to standard yet la .. plus I m not selling cake one! next time I bake more & eat! :))
