Dash salt

1 1/2 c Heavy cream, chilled
1/2 c Confectioner's sugar*****
1/4 c Unsweetened cocoa
2 ts Instant coffee
1 ts Vanilla***

Grease the bottom of a 15 1/2x10 1/2x1" jelly-roll pan; line with waxed
paper, grease lightly. Preheat oven to 375 In a large bowl of an electric
mixer beat egg whites at high speed until soft peaks form when beaters are
slowly raised. Add 1/4 cup sugar, 2 T at a time, beating until stiff peaks
form when beater is slowly raised. With same beaters beat yolks at high
speed, adding the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar 2 T at a time, until mixture
is very thick-about 4 minutes. At low speed beat in cocoa, vanilla and salt
just until >> smooth. With wire whisk or rubber scraper using and under and

1" from the edge, reroll/ Refrigerate 1 hour before serving. To serve
sprinkle with confectioner's sugar. You may make this cake a week ahead,
then freeze it wrapped in foil. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour

*** Pure vanilla has alcohol and therefore is not Kosher for Passover.
Either leave it out or find vanilla without the alcohol. *****
Confectioner's sugar has cornstarch and so is not Kosher for Passover,
someone posted a recipe for making confectioner's sugar by using potato
starch instead of cornstarch. I did not get the exact directions, but I
think if you backdate you will find it in one of the dessert recipes.
