Recipe type: Baking
  • 1 pkg. (4 oz.) Bakers German Sweet Chocolate
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 eggs separated
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter softened

  • 2 cups white sugar

  1. Microwave chocolate and water in large microwaveable bowl on high for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until chocolate is almost melted. Remove and stir chocolate until completely smooth.
  2. Beat egg whites in small bowl with a mixer on high until stiff peaks form; set aside. Mix flour, baking soda and salt. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, 1 at a time, beating well after each. Blend in melted chocolate and vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beating until well blended after each addition. Add egg whites; stir gently until well blended.
