3  Oz  Semisweet Chocolate
2  Oz  Unsweetened Chocolate
1  Tbsp  Instant Coffee
1 1/3  C  Boiling Water
1 3/4  C  Flour
1/4  C  Cocoa
1 1/2  Tsp  Baking Powder

Preheat oven to 325. Butter (2) 5-cup loaf pans and dust with chocolate crumbs. In a small saucepan over moderate heat place both chocolates with the coffee powder and water. Whisk frequently until the chocolates are melted and the mixture is smooth. Sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt, and pepper and set aside. In a large bowl, beat the butter until creamy and add the vanilla. Gradually add the sugar and beat well. Add the eggs and beat until smooth. Then, on low speed, alternately ass the dry ingredients and the chocolate mixtures. Pour the mixture into the prepared pans and bake for 1 hour and 10 to 15 minutes. Cover the pans loosely with foil after about 40 minutes of baking. Let the cakes cool in the pans for 15 minutes, then invert pan and cool the cake, upside down on a rack. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
