Light in both color and texture, this cake uses a surprise ingredient and goes well with ice cream. It's somewhat reminiscent of gingerbread.

- Gradually add cocoa, flour, baking powder, and salt while continuing to mix. Scrape bowl as needed.
- Add vanilla, scrape sides of bowl, and mix once more.

As an update - as noted I'd made this recipe earlier then realized I'd done something wrong - left out the baking poweder (guess old age is creeping up on me) so made it again and as you can see by the picture it made a major differance in appearance. State was pretty much the same - just highger a lighter. Still didn't get the gingerbread taste but very light in color and texture.Reply
