butter , soft
2 c
sugar
1 c
semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c
hot water
1 c
buttermilk
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 1/2 c
all purpose flour, sifted
1 tsp
baking soda

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Separate the eggs and beat the egg whites until stiff, and set aside. In a large bowl, cream the butter with the sugar. Melt the chocolate in the hot water. Beat in the egg yolks, then the melted chocolate, buttermilk, and vanilla.
In a bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Beat into the chocolate mixture. Stir in about 1/3 of the egg whites to lighten the batter and then fold in the rest gently but thoroughly.
