How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 300°F. Grease 9-inch springform pan. Set aside.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine water and cornmeal in 1-quart saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 3-4 minutes or until mixture comes to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook 5-7 minutes or until mixture is thickened. Remove from heat; let stand 2 minutes.

  3. STEP 3

    Add butter, chocolate and vanilla; stir until melted. Cool completely.

  4. STEP 4

    Combine 1/4 cup sugar and egg yolks in bowl. Beat at medium speed until mixture is thick and lemon-colored. Stir in chocolate mixture.

  5. STEP 5

    Beat egg whites in another bowl at high speed until soft peaks form. Continue beating, gradually adding 2 tablespoons sugar, until glossy and stiff peaks form. (Do not over beat.) Gently stir in chocolate mixture.

  6. STEP 6

    Pour mixture into prepared springform pan. Bake 40-45 minutes or until cake is set in center. Cool completely. Garnish with whipped cream, if desired. Sprinkle with chocolate, if desired.
