Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
2 Teaspoon(t)  pure vanilla extract
2 Cup(c)  chocolate syrup
4   large eggs, separated
1 Cup(c)  sugar
8 Tablespoon(T)  unsalted butter, at room temperature
2 Tablespoon(T)  unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Cup(c)  self rising flour


Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Line two 9 by 5 inch loaf pans with parchment paper. Grease the pans, dust them with flour, and tap out the excess.

Sift the flour and the cocoa powder together into a bowl, and set it aside. Cream the butter and sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Reduce the speed to low and add the flour mixture in three additions, alternating with the syrup in two additions, beginning and ending with the flour. Then beat in the vanilla.

Using a clean, dry bowl and beaters, beat the egg whites on medium high speed until stiff peaks form, about 1 1/2 minutes. Stir one fourth of the egg whites into the batter to lighten it. Then add the remaining whites in three additions, folding them in until incorporated. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pans, and bake on the center oven rack until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes.

Allow the loaves to cool in the pans set on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Then run a knife around the edges and turn the loaves out. Return them to the rack to cool completely. Cut one or both loaves into slices, and serve.
