 Ingredients List

  • 9 Eggs, separated, room temp.
  • 1 tb Rum, dark
  • 1/4 ts Extract, vanilla
  • 1/4 ts Cream of Tartar
  • 8 tb Sugar
  • 12 oz Chocolate, semi-sweet,
  • -- melted
  • 6 tb Butter, unsalted, melted
  • 3 tb Cornstarch
  • 2 tb Cocoa, unsweetened
  • 2 1/2 oz Amaretti (about 10 Italian
  • -- macaroons), finely
  • -- ground


For Cake:

Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter and flour 3 9-inch round cake pans.

Beat yolks until they are pale yellow and form a ribbon when
beaters are lifted, about 5 minutes. Beat in rum and vanilla.

Beat whites with cream of tartar to soft peaks. Add sugar 1
tablespoon at a time and continue beating until stiff and shiny.

Stir 12 ounces of semisweet chocolate and butter into yolks until
well combined. Gently fold in 1/4 of egg whites to lighten the
batter, then gently fold in the remaining whites.

Sift together cornstarch and cocoa; combine with ground amaretti.
Gently fold into the batter.

Divide batter among prepared pans. Bake until centers of cakes
rise and tops begin to crack, 18 to 20 minutes. Cool 10 minutes in
pans, then cool completely on wire rack (cakes will fall slightly.)
