My recipe is the same as Edesanja's, but instead of making the wholes etc, I just dump everything in one bowl, mix, and pour in a cake pan. Easiest cake ever and it's still very tasty. Sometimes I add a handful of chocolate chips (so maybe carob chips?) or some sour cherries - it makes it taste like a black forest cake. Yummm

I always wondered if making the holes was necessary or not!! I put choc chips in to sometimes. Or canned boysenberries. Yum!

Chocolate Chiffon Cake
C boiling water
C cocoa
1 C sifted flour (I measure, sift, measure again)
1 C sugar
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
C oil
7 egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla
7 egg whites
tsp cream of tarter
1)    Combine boiling water and cocoa; set aside to cool
2)   Sift flour, sugar, soda and salt together
3)   In another bowl, mix oil, egg yolks, vanilla and then add the cooled cocoa mixture
4)   Make a well in the dry ingredients; add the liquid and mix until smooth
5)   Using a mixer, beat egg whites and cream of tarter until stiff (you should be able to run a spatula through and it parts and stays stiff)
6)   Drizzle the batter into the stiff egg whites very gradually while very gently folding it in with a spatula
7)   Pour into an ungreased 10 inch tube pan and bake and 325 degrees for 65 minutes.
8 )   Turn upside down to cool immediately upon removing it from the oven.  Wait until completely cooled before removing from pan (I run a knife around the edge to loosen it).
