You need:

– 5 eggs

– 250 g sugar

– 2 pck. vanilla sugar

– 125 ml warm water

– 250 ml sunflower oil

– 375 g plain flour

– 1 pck. baking powder

– 2 tbsp. cocoa powder

– 2 tbsp. water

– Separate eggs and beat egg white until stiff. Cream egg yolk with sugar and vanilla sugar, then merge with warm water and oil.

– Mix flour with baking powder, then fold in the egg/sugar mass

– Divide the dough into two parts, mix one part with cocoa powder and 2 tbsp. water

– Divide the beaten egg whites in two parts, add a half a time to the two halves of dough, fold in carefully

– Fill in a springform pan lined with baking paper and bake about 30 min at 160°C (circulation air) or 180°C (top/bottom heat)

(—> rubbish! leave out this step)

– Grease a springform pan and place a tablespoonful of light dough in the center of the pan, then give a spoonful of dark dough on it. Continue with another spoonful of light dough, then another spoonful of dark dough and so on until both halves of dough are used up. Don't spread the dough with a spoon, it will flow circularly by itself by the weight of each following spoonful of dough.

– Bake 50-60 min at 160°C (circulation air) or 175°C (top/bottom heat)
