This recipe makes a very large, decadent, moist chocolate cake fit for a crowd. Rich and full of chocolaty goodness, top this cake with your favorite frosting for an exquisite finish. This cake freezes very well.
Add one and a half cups sugar, cocoa, coffee, vanilla sugar, water, and chocolate to a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.
Add margarine to the pan and stir until melted.
Transfer chocolate mixture to a large bowl, then stir in flour and baking powder.
Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form, gradually adding remaining one and a half cups of sugar. Fold in yolks. Combine with chocolate mixture.
Pour into greased or lined 10×16-inch baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. When completely cooled, ice with your favorite chocolate frosting.

Yummy, moist, flavorful, I used only 2 cups of sugar and it was sweet enough.
