Melt chocolate in 1/2 cup of boiling water. Cool. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating after each. Add vanilla and chocolate; mix until blended. Sift flour with soda and salt. Add sifted dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk to chocolate mixture, beating after each addition until batter is smooth. Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites.

I was taught to alternate addition of flour and liquid to creamed butter/sugar, beginning with the flour and ending with either the flour OR the liquid–can’t remember which. Can you remind me?
