3. Add slowly 1-1/2 cups sugar, beating, and beat the mixture until it is thick and pale and forms a ribbon.

4. Add the chocolate and combine the batter well.

5. In another large bowl with clean beaters, beat the egg whites until they hold soft peaks.

6. Add the remaining 1/4 cup sugar slowly, and beat until whites hold stiff peaks.

7. Stir a fourth of the whites into the yolk mixture, fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly, and pour the batter into the pans, spreading it evenly.

8. Bake the cake layers in the middle of a preheated 375f oven for 18-20 minutes or until pick test.

9. Let cake layers cool in the pans, covered with kitchen towels on large racks.

10. Invert the cake layers onto the racks and remove the wax paper carefully.

11. Butter cream: In a small heavy saucepan, dissolve sugar in 1/3 cup water over moderate heat, stirring.

12. Bring mixture to a boil, and boil it until it registers 240f on a candy thermometer.

13. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat eggs until they are frothy.
