  1. In the top of a double boiler, melt unsweetened chocolate and 3/4 cup butter, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Set aside to cool to room temperature. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 10 inch Bundt or tube pan.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg yolks and 3/4 cup sugar together with an electric mixer on High speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Gradually stir in the 3/4 cup of port wine and flour. Fold in the cooled chocolate mixture.
  3. In a clean bowl, whip egg whites with cream of tartar until frothy. Gradually whisk in 3 tablespoons sugar, and continue to whip until stiff peaks form. Fold 1/3 of the whites into the batter, then quickly fold in remaining whites until no streaks remain. Quickly fold in walnuts. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, or until tested done with a toothpick. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Invert onto serving plate. Cool completely.
  5. To make the glaze: In the top of a double boiler, over lightly simmering water, combine chocolate chips, 1/2 cup butter and corn syrup. Stir frequently until chocolate is melted. Stir in the remaining 1/2 cup port wine and vanilla until mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool for about 30 minutes. Pour glaze over the cooled cake.

For the experienced baker, this recipe is pretty straight forward and not a lot of work. The result is a dense chocolate cake with a lot of flavor. Use good chocolate, I recommend just using 14 ...

I have been wanting to make this for some time. In one word -- disappointment. I made this for my husband's birthday. The flavor was good but it was nothing what I expected because of the work p...

Absolutely sinful! I had some old port that I needed to use, and it turned out to be the most raved-about item on my menu!

Have been looking for a cake with Port for some time and this hits the spot. Also I like heavy dark cakes, but I put on my own chocolate glaze minus the Port. Thanks again. Contrary to other ...

Disappointed in this recipe. I make a chocolate rasp port and thought this would be a great recipe. I used good chocolate but it did not help. It was dry and fell apart as it cooled. I still ser...

I LOVE this cake. Yes, it's takes some work but it's well worth it. I will not even consider a recipe that uses boxed cake mix. If you follow the directions it will come out great. It is necessa...

If you have the ingredients to make this recipe, I'd recommend making something else with them. This was okay. It was VERY dry. There are SO many better chocolate dessert recipes out there.
