Cocoa Chiffon Cake

This was my mothers recipe and I have no idea where she got it. Anyway, it is a very light and moist one layer cake which adapts to a lot of different toppings - your choice. Very important that you use an 8" square deep tin totally free of grease and follow directions exactly as written. Baking time given is approximate so please check after 20 mins. Oven 350
