Decadent Chocolate Cake

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

4 eggs, separated

1/2 cup sugar

Glaze

1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons butter

2 tablespoons corn syrup

Heat oven to 325F. Grease round cake pan 9×1 1/2 inches. Heat 1 cup chocolate chips and 1/2 cup butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat until chocolate is melted;cool five minutes. Stir in flour until smooth. Add egg yolks until well blended.

Beat egg whites in large bowl on high speed until foamy. Beat in sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, until soft peaks form. Fold chocolate mixture into egg whites. Spread in pan. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until top is dry and cracked. Cool for 10 minutes then remove from pan.
