As you have seen (and hopefully tried firsthand) the cake with only egg whites that we have advised you to try is not bad at all on the palate. It’s as soft as a pillow and makes you want to eat more than just a slice. If you want to make this easy and light dessert even more irresistible, you can always try the chocolate variant. There is not much to change in the recipe, other than the addition of about 50-60 g of unsweetened cocoa powder to mix together with all the other powders. Alternatively, you can use about 110 g of dark chocolate , to be melted in the microwave and incorporated into the mixture at the end, being careful not to dismantle everything.


The light egg white cake (but also the cocoa one) can be kept out of the fridge for about 3-4 days , in a cool and dry place and placed in a special glass jar for sweets. We do not recommend freezing.
