With the double boiler melt the chocolate for the cake. This time adding in the butter, stirring from time to time until it is smooth.
In another bowl whisk the eggs, sugar and vanilla for 5 minutes at a high speed. At the end of the mix should be thick and light. Now add the melted chocolate from the double boiler and the flour.
