1/4  teaspoon  baking powder
1  4 oz. bar  bittersweet chocolate, , finely chopped
1/2  cup  boiling water

Combine first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl; add chocolate and boiling water, stirring until chocolate melts. Stir in egg yolks and liqueur. Beat egg whites at high speed with an electric mixer until foamy. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 Tablespoon at a time, beating until stiff peaks form and sugar dissolves (2 to 4 minutes). Stir one-third of egg whites into chocolate mixture; fold in remaining egg whites. Pour into a lightly greased 8-inch springform pan. Bake at 375 deg. F for 28 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack 10 minutes; remove sides of pan, and cool completely (cake will be cracked on top). Sprinkle with powdered sugar. Sharon O'Dell St. George Island, Florida NOTES : I tried this recipe when I had company, and they LOVED it. It is easy to make and crispy on the outside and rich and chocolatey inside.
