 Ingredients List

  • 1 c Cake flour
  • 1/4 c Cocoa powder
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 11 lg Egg whites; at room
  • -temperature
  • 1 ts Cream of tartar
  • 3/4 c Granulated sugar
  • 1 ts Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 ts Chocolate extract; optional
  • --Vanilla Glaze--
  • 1/2 c Powdered sugar
  • 1/4 ts Vanilla extract
  • 2 ts Water; up to 3 tsp.


Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease a 10 cup pan with a removable bottom
and dust with cocoa powder. Resift the cake flour five times with the cocoa
powder and 1/3 cup granulated sugar. Using 1/4 of the egg whites at a time,
whip all the whites until foamy. (See below for egg white notes.) Add the
cream of tartar when all 11 egg whites are foamy. Continue to whip the egg
whites, adding 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Stir the vanilla
extract and chocolate flavor into the beaten egg whites. Sift 1/4 of the
flour mixture into the batter and fold gently. Repeat until finished with
the flour. Pour the batter into the prepared tube pan. Gently move a knife
through the batter to remove air pockets. Bake in the preheated oven for 45
minutes. Invert pan and let cool for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from pan and
drizzle with vanilla glaze.

Beating Egg Whites: Use a deep glass bowl and a thin wire whisk. Do not use
an aluminum or plastic bowl. Since this recipe calls for cream of tartar,
do not use a copper bowl. The egg whites whould be 75F in temperature and
should contain no egg yolk.

For glaze, stir all ings. until smooth and pour over cake.
