Decreased sugar to 1/2 cup, used 18 ounces of semi-sweet chocolate chips, and only 5 eggs. I did take some shortcuts. First, I added the chocolate chips to the saucepan of water, sugar, and salt so that it would melt thoroughly with it. I through in all of the butter at one time and stirred a lot until it melted. Removed all of this from low heat, tempered my 5 eggs with a little of the batter thus far and then slowly poured in the egg while my cake beater was on constantly. I used a spring form pan with parchment paper at the bottom and greased entire surface with butter. I did not use a water bath during the baking process. I did get distracted and let the cake cook for 49 minutes rather than 45. Was worried that it would be overdone, but it wasn't! Topped with powdered sugar (that disappeared too quickly) and raspberries with a raspberry-whisky sauce on the side. Highly recommend this cake for all important birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and other days that end in the letter "y".
