  • melt chocolate in suacepan over simmering water. set aside to cool

  • sift self-raising flour and bicarbonate soda

  • cream butter and 1 portion of sugar until light and fluffy

  • beat in egg yolks one at a time followed by cooled melted chocolate

  • fold in sifted ingredients

  • in a seperate bowl, whisk egg whites till soft peaks form. beat in the remaining sugar until mixture just stiff
