Preheat oven to 350Â°F.
Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.
Knock out excess.
Pour boiling water over chocolate and butter; let stand until melted.
Stir in vanilla and sugar, then whisk in egg yolks, one at a time, blending well after each addition.
Mix baking soda and sour cream and whisk into chocolate mixture.
Sift flour and baking powder together and add to batter, mixing thoroughly.
Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.
Stir a quarter of the egg whites thoroughly into the batter.
Scoop remaining egg whites on top of the batter and gently fold together.
Pour batter into the prepared pan.

Cool in pan for 10 minutes; unmold and cool completely before frosting.
