  • The Ingredients:
  • Light brown sugar, 2 cups
  • All-purpose flour, 1 and 3 quarters of a measuring cup
  • Cocoa powder, 3 quarters of a cup
  • Baking powder, 1 and a half teaspoons
  • Plain or iodized table salt, 1 teaspoon
  • Medium sized eggs, 2 pieces
  • Fresh or whole cow's milk, 1 cup
  • Palm or canola vegetable oil, half a cup
  • Room temperature butter, half a stick
  • Vanilla flavor extract, 2 teaspoons
  • Now let's try some easy breezy egg-white icing. You will need the following ingredients:
  • 4 egg whites, make sure that not one iota of egg yolk is caught in the gleam.
  • 1 teaspoon of cream of tartar powder
  • 1 cup of powdered confectioner's sugar
  • 1 very dry ceramic mixing bowl
  • 1 portable hand mixer


  1. The Method:
  2. - Set the oven temperature to 350°F.
  3. - Prepare a 9-inch round baking pan by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. - In a mixing bowl, carefully sieve together the following: sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, in mixing bowl.
  5. - Liquefy the dry mixture by adding the eggs, one at a time.
  6. - Stir well after each egg is added.
  7. - Add the milk slowly, then the oil and vanilla, and mix until smooth and everything is blended thoroughly.
  8. - Using a hand mixer, beat on medium speed for about 1 to 2 minutes. Do not mix or beat too much as it might cause a lot of bubbles in the batter; these tend to make your cake too airy which you don't want to happen.
  9. - Once this is achieved, pour the mixture into the round cake pan.
  10. - Bake for approximately 30 to 35 minutes or until the cake springs back upon being lightly pressed.
  11. - Cool the chocolate cake until it becomes easy to remove from the pan.
  12. - Place on a wire rack and cool completely.
  13. Method:
  14. - In the dry mixing bowl, make sure that you do not incorporate water while pouring the egg whites.
  15. - Add all at once the cream of tartar.
  16. - Beat the egg whites at very high speed while adding the sugar, 1 teaspoonful at a time. This process should take about 5 to 7 minutes to complete. At the end of that period, you should have peaks of creamy, sweet, white icing.
  17. - Proceed to spread with a knife over the cooled chocolate cake.
  18. Voila! Faith prevailed.
