    Directions

    1. Let the eggs stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. 
    2. In a bowl, combine cocoa and boiling water until smooth and cool for 20 minutes.
    3. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. 
    4. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, oil and vanilla, add to the dry ingredients along with the cocoa mixture and beat until well blended.
    5. In another large bowl and with clean beaters, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until stiff peaks form and gradually fold into the egg yolk mixture.
    6. Gently spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan and cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets.
    7. Bake on lowest rack at 325°F for about 60 to 65 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.
    8. Immediately remove the pan and let it cool completely.
    9. Run a knife around sides and center tube of the pan to loosen it and place the cake on a serving plate.
    10. For icing, melt the butter in a saucepan.
    11. Remove from the heat and stir in the confectioners sugar, chocolate, vanilla and water.
