  1. Make the whipped chocolate: Add heavy cream to melted chocolate a little at a time and mix well. While adding ice water to the bowl, whip with a hand mixer for 7 minutes until firm.
  2. Prepare the plain cake: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and sugar, then whip until the mixture hangs off the mixer like a ribbon. Sprinkle in the wheat flour and mix thoroughly with a rubber spatula. Mix in the butter and milk, and whip gently with a rubber spatula to prevent it from hardening. Pour into cake pan.
