DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F Grease a 10" tube pan.
  • Pour boiling water over chocolate and butter; let stand until melted.
  • Stir in vanilla and sugar, then whisk in egg yolks, one at a time, until blended well.
  • Mix soda and sour cream and whisk into chocolate mixture.
  • Mix flour and baking powder well, and add to batter, mixing thoroughly.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry. Stir in a quarter of the egg whites thoroughly into the batter. Scoop the remaining egg whites on top of the batter and gently fold together.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan. Set on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 40-50 minute or until the edges have pulled away from the pan and the cake tester inserted comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; unmold and cool completely before frosting.
  • To Make the Frosting:
  • Place all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and whisk until smooth over low heat. Cool slightly; add more sugar if necessary. Spread on cake while frosting is still warm.
