   Preparation Time: 0:20
   Place chocolate in top of a double boiler; bring water to a
   boil.  Reduce heat to low; cook until chocolate melts.
   Cool.  Combine chocolate, flour, baking powder, soda, salt,
   sugar, butter, water, and vanilla.  Beat 2 minutes at
   medium speed of an electric mixer.  Add eggs, and beat an
   additional 2 minutes. Pour batter into 4 greased and
   floured 9-inch round cakepans.  Bake at 350 degrees for 15
   to 18 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center
   comes out clean.  Cool cake layers in pans 10 minutes;
   remove from pans, and let cool completely on wire racks.
   Place 1 layer on cake platter.  Spread with half the
   Chocolate Filling.  Place another cake layer on top, and
   spread with half the Whipped Cream Frosting.  Repeat
   layers, and garnish with grated chocolate, if desired.
   Refrigerate.  Yield:  one 4-layer torte.
