Method Cake:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray 6 –3” mini cake pans with food release spray. Combine the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, and salt in a large bowl. In a mixer, add the egg whites, sugar and cream of tartar, and whip on medium-high speed to a soft peak. Reduce the mixer speed to low, and slowly add the flour mixture until just combined. Fill the cake pans to the top with a large spoon, scoop the batter into the pan in a random manner. Bake for approximately 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Place pans on a cooling rack to cool completely.
