DIRECTIONS

  • For the Cake: Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Line 2 - 8-inch round pans with parchment or waxed paper.
  • Beat egg whites until frothy.
  • Gradually beat in 1/2 cup of sugar.
  • Beat egg whites until stiff.
  • Sift dry ingredients together.
  • Make a well in the flour mixture; add vegetable oil and half of the milk.
  • Beat until well blended, medium speed.
  • Add remaining milk and egg yolks.
  • Beat until smooth.
  • Fold in the egg whites.
  • Pour into prepared pans.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes.
  • Cool and slice each layer in half, horizontally, to make 4 layers.
  • Frost with Dobash frosting.
  • For the Frosting: Combine first four ingredients and bring to a boil.
  • Sift the cocoa and cornstarch together to get the lumps out and combine with the remaining 1/2 cup water.
  • Add to the boiling mixture. Bring to a boil again, cool slightly, and then frost. (Don't let it get too cool, or it will 'set' in the pot!) This is a nice frosting, it's very smooth, and once it sets, you can't even ding it up and make it ugly! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -.
