This cake is easy to make, uses items most of us already have in our pantry and looks great when finished. Its so easy to prepare and makes a nice change from a chocolate cake.



Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 60 minutes
Serves: 8

Ingredients
4 eggs, room temperature, separated
1 tbsp water
150 g sugar
125 g butter, melted
65 g plain flour
50 g cocoa powder
500 ml lukewarm milk
pinch salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp vinegar


Method
  • Preheat oven to 160C/140C fan forced and line cake tin of your choice.
  • Place egg yolks, water and sugar into a mixing bowl and beat on high until eggs are light and creamy.
  • Add the melted and cooled butter, vanilla extract and salt. Mix well until batter is light and fluffy.
  • Combine the flour and cocoa powder in a bowl and mix. Once combined add in batches to the batter, mixing thoroughly after each addition.

  • Slowly mix in the warmed milk. Your mixture will now be very liquid and look a lot like chocolate milk.

  • In a separate bowl, add the egg whites and vinegar and beat until the egg whites are stiff.

  • Fold the egg whites into the batter, the batter does not need to be completely smooth.
  • Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake for 45-60 minutes. Your cake is ready when it is firm to touch but still a bit wobbly in the centre.

  • Cool completely and then sprinkle with icing sugar or cocoa powder and serve.
