  6. Stir in the flour mixture, a spoonful at a time.
  7. When done, continue to whisk a few more minutes until the wet and dry ingredients are well-comined.
  8. In the meantime, whisk the egg whites you’ve set aside until stiff peaks form.
  9. Gently fold the egg whites into your cake batter.
  10. Pour about 2/3 of the batter into a greased bundt cake form.
  11. Add the cocoa powder to the rest of the batter and whisk again until well-combined.
  12. Now pour the mixture into the bundt cake form and, using a fork, make some swirls.
