Ingredients

  • About 1/4 cup salad oil
  • About 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • Whipped frosting

Preparation

  1. 1. Oil a metal 8-inch square or 8-inch wide round cake pan, or a 9-inch wide, 1 1/2- to 2- inch deep heart-shaped pan. Line pan bottom with waxed paper cut to fit; oil paper. Dust pan with cocoa, shaking out excess.
  2. 2. In a bowl, mix 2/3 cup cocoa, flour, soda, and salt.
  3. 3. In another bowl with a mixer, beat to blend sugar, 1/4 cup salad oil, egg whites, vanilla, orange peel, and 1 cup water. Add flour mixture; stir to mix, then beat until batter is smooth. Scrape batter into prepared pan.
  4. 4. Bake in a 350° oven until cake begins to pull from pan side and springs back when lightly pressed in center, 35 to 40 minutes.
  5. 5. Let cool in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Run a thin knife between cake and pan rim, invert the cake onto a rack, lift off pan, and gently pull off and discard waxed paper. Let cool about 1 hour. Invert a flat plate onto cake; holding rack and plate together, turn cake over onto plate. Spread cake with whipped frosting, swirling with small spatula. Lightly dust with more cocoa.
