1  oz  Unsweetened Chocolate
1  oz  Semisweet Chocolate
2  tb  Water
3    Eggs
1  c  Sugar - scant
1/2  c  Flour
  ds  Salt
5  tb  Sugar
2  tb  Water
2    Egg Yolks - slightly beaten
1    Stick Butter - creamed
1  t  Vanilla OR 1 Tablespoon any
    Liqueur (Kahlua!!)
    (See recipe)

CAKE: Melt chocolates with water. Set aside. In double boiler, stir eggs and sugar until thickened. Remove from heat and continue beating with electric beater until mixture cools. Blend in cooled chocolate with electric beater. Sift flour with salt and fold into chocolate mixture. Bake in a greased, floured 9-inch cake pan or springform pan about 45 minutes at 375F. Check temperature on oven to insure accuracy. Check after 30 minutes. Overcooks easily. FILLING: Dissolve sugar in water and boil to thread stage (265 degrees). Beat into egg yolks slowly (but not so slow that the syrup gets cold) until thick. Gradually beat in butter and add flavoring. When cake is cool, split and sandwich with filling. Frost with Chocolate Glace Frosting (see next recipe). This is heavenly! You can also double the recipe and make two cakes, putting filling between layers rather than having to split the cake if your layers don't rise enough.
