Beat two minutes at medium speed with an electric mixer. Add eggs, egg yolk, and chocolate. Beat one minute longer. Pour batter into a greased and floured 10-inch tube pan which has been lined with waxed paper. Bake about 65 minutes. Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Turn out of pan, remove waxed paper, and cool completely. Frost with chocolate glaze.
