Gently fold in chocolate and butter. Pour into a paper lined and greased 10-inch cake pan. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes or until the cake barely resists pressure from touch. Cool for 10 minutes and turn onto a serving plate.

Top Layer Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat milk in a saucepan until hot. Add chocolate and stir until melted. Stir in butter, liquor and vanilla. Remove from heat and whisk a small amount of chocolate mixture in with egg yolks. Pour yolk mixture back into saucepan and mix. Pour in a lined and greased pan, and bake 20 to 30 minutes or until barely set. Cool completely then turn over on top of the bottom layer.

Garnish cake with whipped cream.
