Easy And Delicious Chocolate Feather Cake

My husband used to make this cake and eat the whole thing on his own when he was studying for exams in High School. I have started using it for Birthday cakes and it is an awesome moist, light cake that rises perfectly every time and is quick and easy to make and can be doubled or tripled or even quadrupled without a problem. Though you need to separate the eggs you use the yolks too so no wastage.
