Heat oven to 325°F. Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in mixing bowl. Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs and yolk one a time, beating between each addition until smooth. Add extracts, and mix. Fold dry ingredients into wet ingredients in three batches, gently mixing to combine after each addition. Repeat until batter comes together. Batter will be thick.
