 MMMMM-----------------FLUFFY CHOCOLATE FROSTING----------------------
       3 lg Egg whites
     1/2 oz Unsweetened chocolate
   2 1/2 tb Light corn syrup
     3/4 c  Granulated sugar
         pn Salt
     3/4 t  Vanilla extract
     1/4 t  Instant coffee powder
       1 t  Hot water
     1/4 c  Powdered sugar
       3 tb Unsweetened cocoa powder
   Preheat oven to 350'F. Grease (or spray with non-stick cooking spray)
   three 8 or 8 1/2 round cake pans.
   In a small, heavy saucepan over lowest heat, melt chocolate, stirring
   constantly until smooth; be careful not to scorch. Set aside. Sift
   together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt
   onto a sheet of wax paper. In a large mixer bowl, with mixer set on
   medium speed, beat oil, butter and sugar until very well blended and
   fluffy. Beat in chocolate. One at a time, beat in egg, then whites,
   coffee and vanilla until smoothly incorporated. Gently stir half of
   the dry ingredients, then yogurt into the mixture just until mixed.
   Stir in remaining dry ingredients just until well blended and smooth.
   Divide batter among pans, spreading in edges.
   Bake in the middle of the oven for 23-28 minutes, or until tops are
   almost firm when tapped and a toothpick inserted in the center comes
   out moist but clean. Transfer pans to racks and let stand until
   completely cooled. Layers may be wrapped airtight and frozen for
   later use. Let return to room temperature before using. Or frost cake
   and serve immediately, if desired. Makes 10-12 servings.

   FLUFFY CHOCOLATE FROSTING: Place egg whites in a large mixer bowl.
   Set the bowl in a large bowl of very hot tap water and let stand for
   10 minutes, stirring occasionally. In a small heavy saucepan set over
   low heat, melt chocolate, stirring constantly, until smooth; be very
   careful not to scorch. Set aside to cool slightly.
   Combine the corn syrup, 1/4 cup water and the sugar in a 2-quarter
   saucepan, stirring until well blended. Bring to a simmer over
   medium-heat heat. Cover and boil for 2 minutes to allow steam to wash
   any sugar from pan sides. Uncover and continue simmering, without
   stirring, until mixture bubbles loudly and reaches 244-245'F on a
   candy thermometer (about 1 1/2 minutes). (To test without a candy
   thermometer, drop a teaspoon of syrup into ice water; when cooked to
   the proper temperature the syrup will form a firm ball that holds its
   shape when squeezed.) Immedately remove pan from heat and set aside.
   With mixer set on medium speed, beat egg whites until very frothy and
   opaque. Raise speed to high and beat until whites just begin to stand
   in soft peaks; be careful not to overbeat. Meanwhile, return syrup to
   burner and reheat just to boiling. Beating whites on high speed,
   immediately begin pouring boiling syrup in a stream down the side of
   the bowl (avoid beaters or syrup will stick to them or be thrown onto
   bowl side), pouring rapidly enough that all the syrup is incorporated
   in about 15 seconds. Add salt and continue beating on high speed
   until the mixture is stiffened, glossy and cooled to barely warm.
   Beat in vanilla and coffee mixture until evenly incorporated. Sift
   powdered sugar and cocoa onto a sheet of wax paper. A bit at a time,
   whisk into egg-white mixture. Whisk in melted chocolate just until
   smoothly incorporated.
   Frost cake immediately, or store frosting airtight for up to 48 hours.
   Frosting may soften and gradually deflate upon longer standing.
