* for whipping cream 1) Heat oven to 350 F. Butter and line a 10 x 15" jelly roll pan with waxed paper. Separate eggs. 2) Cut chocolate into small pieces and combine butter and 2 tbl. of cognac in large bowl. In medium saucepan, bring 2" water to a simmer over low heat. Remove pan from heat. Set bowl of chocolate over hot water and stir until mixture is smooth. Remove bowl from hot water and add egg yolks, one at a time, beating thoroughly. Set aside. 3) Beat egg whites with a pinch of salt until they just begin to hold soft peaks. Add sugar in slow stream and continue beating until stiff. Gently stir about 1/4 of the egg-white mixture into chocolate mixture, and fold in remainder. 4) Pour batter into pan and smooth top with a metal spatula. Bake until firm to the touch, about 15 minutes. 5) Run a small, sharp knife along edge of cake to loosen it. Slide cake onto work surface and let cool about 20 minutes. 6) Slide cookie sheet under cake and cover cake with a sheet of waxed paper. Set another cookie sheet on top and invert cake.
