I started by a cocoa chiffon. The result surprised me A LOT - it was even better than all those I had eaten before and made by other people. It was really soft and wet... oh God, there goes my diet!
I've covered it with a chocolate meringue, based on a simple italian meringue to which I added melted chocolate+butter.
I'll share my recipe with you so that we can compare recipes and maybe achieve an even better one.
Dry items :
180g wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
50g corn flour (MAIZENA, is it known on your countries?)
70g cocoa powder - I've used Valrhona
350g yellow sugar
125ml corn oil
And this was the result....
