directions

  • 1

    Line three 9-in. round baking pans with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. Let eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

  • 2

    In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. In another bowl, whisk the water, oil, egg yolks and melted chocolate. Add to dry ingredients; beat until well blended. In another bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until stiff peaks form; fold into batter.

  • 3

    Pour into prepared pans. Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Carefully remove waxed paper.

  • 4

    In a large saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until mixture comes to a boil. Chill for 2 hours or until filling reaches spreading consistency, stirring occasionally. Beat with a mixer until fluffy.

  • 5

    Cut each cake horizontally into two layers. Place bottom layer on a serving plate; top with a fifth of the filling. Repeat layers.

  • 6

    For frosting, in a large bowl, beat the cream, confectioners’ sugar and cocoa until stiff peaks form. Spread over top and sides of cake. Garnish with chocolate curls. Yield: 12 servings.
