  • 3.

    Beat egg whites with 1/2 cup sugar and lemon juice until soft peaks and set aside

  • 4.

    Combine the egg yolks with remaining sugar

    Add Sifted flour to mix 1/3 at a time and slowly add the boiled water, also in parts

  • 7.

    Take the beaten egg whites and carefully fold into chocolate flour mix, taking care not to let the air out of the egg whites

  • 11.

    Remove from oven and invert the tin onto a bottle or glass and let cool

You can try different flavors. My other fave is Lemon, so replace the chocolate with 1/2 cup lemon juice and the zest of one lemon. Bon Appetito
