‘To Die For’ chocolate cake

This is the one where you save half the raw cake mix to use as icing. Don’t try to take it off the base because if it’s still very gooey in the middle it will collapse.

150g plain chocolate
¾ cup cocoa
1½ cups sugar
1 cup water
300g marg
6 egg yolks
6 egg whites
1½ cups s.r. flour
1 cup sugar

. Preheat oven to #4 (180°F, 160°C)
. Melt in saucepan chocolate, cocoa, sugar, water and marg
. When cool enough add 6 eggs yolks lightly beaten
. Put aside 1 cup of mixture for icing (optional)
. Beat whites till stiff then slowly beat in sugar
. Fold ½ whites into chocolate, then flour then remaining whites
. Bake 40 minutes till knife comes out clean, do not overbake!
. When cake is cold spread over icing
