Ingredients
  Sifted cake flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Cocoa 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs), sifted
  Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
  Ground allspice 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground nutmeg 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cloves 1⁄4 Teaspoon

  Cream of tartar 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
  Sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Directions

Sift flour, 3/4 cup sugar, cocoa, and spices together and blend thoroughly; set aside.
Beat egg whites with cream of tartar, salt, and extract until stiff, not dry, peaks are formed.
Lightly fold in remaining sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time.
Gently folding until blended after each addition, sift about 4 tablespoons flour mixture at a time over beaten egg whites.
Carefully slide batter into an ungreased 10-inch tubed pan.
Cut through batter with knife or spatula to break large air bubbles.
Bake at 350°F 45 to 50 minutes, or until cake tests done.
Immediately invert pan and cool completely.
Remove cake from pan as directed for sponge-type cakes.
