  1. Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff, and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar. Melt the chocolate in the hot water. Beat in the egg yolks, then the melted chocolate, buttermilk, and vanilla.
  2. In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat into the chocolate mixture. Stir in about 1/3 of the egg whites to lighten the batter and then fold in the rest gently but thoroughly.
  3. Turn the batter into a greased and floured tube pan. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 1 hour, or until the cake tests done with a toothpick. Let cool on a rack. Makes 16 servings.

Rich, moist, and chocolatey! Very good chocolate cake. Cut back on the number of egg yolks used to lessen cholesteral-no effect on the cake. Yummy cake!

This was a very good cake. I watched it very closely to make sure it didn't burn since it's easy to burn chocolate... that's probably why those other's came out dry. But whats wonderful is that ...
