  • Grease and flour lined pan; tap out excess flour.
  • Combine flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; mix well.
  • In a separate bowl, using an electric mixer set on medium speed, beat yolks and 1/4 cup sugar until fluffy.
  • In a small bowl, and using clean beaters, beat egg whites until foamy.
  • Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff, but not dry, peaks form.
  • Fold 1/3 of the beaten egg whites into the yolk mixture.
  • Alternately fold in remaining whites and flour mixture.

    Used a tad less all purpose flour instead of cake flour and dusted with icing sugar. For a filling I used whipped cream and raspberries. Awesome. I would like to try it with ice cream BUT I don't think my family will let me!

    This cake is really soft (handle tenderly) and not "wow" on its own but I used cookies n cream ice cream and topped with chocolate sauce and whipped cream for my son's birthday and my husband requested it again for his birthday two and a half weeks later. Fantastic!

    Very good, Karen! I have to admit that my cake fell apart(my fault) but I just crumbled it up in a casserole dish, spread the icecream on, and drizzled chocolate syrup on top and it still tasted great-and even looks it! Will definitely make this again(hopefully right the next time(=!) Thanks for posting, Karen!
