  •  1 pinch of salt
  •  1 pinch of ground cinnamon

Tip: For a moist, fluffy chocolate cake, it is best to sift all the dry ingredients together.

Separate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Add the oil and milk to the previous mixture and mix well. Then, to continue with the preparation of the moist and fluffy chocolate cake, add the vinegar and continue beating.

Now add the egg yolks and the vanilla essence and continue mixing. Separately, beat the egg whites until stiff with the remaining sugar and incorporate them into the mixture with the help of a spatula, making smooth enveloping movements.

Tip: The stiff egg whites will add even more air to this chocolate wet cake.

Pour the chocolate wet cake batter into a previously floured and buttered baking pan and bake it at 180 ºC (with the oven previously preheated) for 50 minutes.
