Prepare the Perfect Chocolate Cake

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.
