Cocoa powder

Preparation steps

  • Step 1 : Preheat the oven to 180°C and butter the pan. Traditionally, we use a high-sided mould (about 10cm) with a chimney in the middle.
  • Step 2 : Beat the Eggs with an electric whisk, adding the Sugar little by little, for about 5 minutes. The mixture should triple in volume and be slightly stiff.
  • Step 3 : In a bowl, mix the Flour, Cocoa powder and Baking powder.
  • Step 4 : Sift the flour/cocoa mixture and add it gradually and very gently to the beaten Eggs.
  • Step 5 : Pour the mixture into the pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes.
