       Yield: 1 cake
       2 t  Espresso coffee,
     1/4 c  Water, hot
       7 oz Chocolate, semisweet
       2 oz Chocolate, bitter
       4    Eggs, separated
       4 oz Butter
     2/3 c  Sugar
     1/4 t  Cream of tartar
     3/4 c  Cornstarch, sifted
       2 t  Espresso coffee,
       7 oz Chocolate, semisweet
       2 oz Chocolate, bitter
       2 T  Butter
   Combine espresso, hot water, semisweet chocolate and bitter chocolate in
   double boiler filled with hot water and cover.  Without applying additional
   heat, melt the chocolate.
   Butter two layer-cake pans, lay a sheet of waxed paper in each, and dust
   the pans with flour. (The pans should be able to hold about 4 cups each.)
   Beat the egg yolks and then gradually add about 2/3 cup of sugar until the
   yolks are thick and lemon colored.
   Beat butter into the chocolate mixture.  Add the chocolate mixture to the
   egg yolks and stir.
   Beat the egg whites until foamy.  Add the cream of tartar, and then
   gradually add up to 2 T sugar.
   Add the sifted corn starch gradually to the chocolate mixture, alternating
   with the egg whites.  The corn starch and egg whites should be folded in to
   the chocolate mixture.
   Pour half the batter into each cake pan.  Bake on the lower middle level of
   a preheated 350 degree F. oven until set on the sides. Cool the cake in the
   pan, and then turn out onto a serving dish.
   Combine the icing ingredients and ice the cake as you would a normal layer
   *  A decadently rich chocolate cake -- My mother got this recipe from a
   radio show about ten years ago. She was intrigued because the cake contains
   no flour. It is definitely for chocoholics. Although it is a two-layer
   cake, it is only about 3-4 inches thick when it’s done, and has the
   consistency and density of a chocolate candy bar. It can be frozen if you
   find it too much to eat at one time.
