Hot Chocolate Meringue Cake


  • Parchment paper
  • 6  egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon of cream of tartar
  • 1 1/4 cups of sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of sifted cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • 4 cups of whipped cream


  1. Heat oven to 200 degrees F and line two baking pans with parchment paper and set aside. Draw two 9-inch circles in the center of the paper and set aside.
  2. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Stream in 1 1/4 cups sugar and continue to beat on high speed. Just as the whites reach their peaks, sprinkle in sifted cocoa and cayenne pepper and continue beating to stiff peaks.
  3. Spread the meringue within the circles and bake for 3 hours, turn off oven, and let sit for 1 hour.
  4. Cool on the pan on a wire rack. Store in a very dry, cool place.
  5. Fill the layers with whipped cream and serve within 2 hours.
