  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 4 eggs whites and yolks separated, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup AP flour
  • cup Dutch processed cocoa powder I used Hershey's
  • 2 cups Lukewarm milk
  • Powdered sugar to top


  • Preheat the oven to 320F.
  • Coat the bottom of an 8X8 inch baking dish with non stick spray. Line it with parchment paper and coat the paper with non stick spray.
  • Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl and set aside to cool.
  • Beat egg whites in a clean and dry bowl until stiff peak. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix egg yolks and sugar until light and creamy.
  • Add melted butter and mix until fully combined.
  • Sift all purpose flour and dutch processed cocoa powder into the batter and mix using a spatula until fully combined.
  • Add milk and mix well.
  • Fold in the egg whites one third at a time. Fold gently using a spatula and don't over mix.
  • Pour the batter in to the baking dish and bake for 60 minutes. Check after 40 minutes. The cake is done once the center is jiggles slightly but feels firm. 
  • Let the cake cool in room temperature and then put it in the refrigerator for one to two hours.
  • Dust with powdered sugar and slice.


  • This cake is best served on the same day. 
  • The batter will be very thin. Don't worry, that's how it should be. A few egg white lumps are fine, too.
