20 grams (3 tablespoons) unsweetened cocoa powder
If your eggs are in the fridge. Take it out ahead of time. Or better yet use eggs that are fresh and not from the fridge.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C
Prepare and grease your round baking pan with oil or butter.
In a mixing bowl, add eggs and sugar. Start beating using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer. Beat the eggs until very fluffy and pale yellow (about 15 minutes on medium/high speed).

Once cake is cooked, leave it in the oven and immediately turn off the heat. Open the oven doors to let it cool down inside. After a few minutes, take it out and and run a thin knife on the round edge of pan to loosen up a bit.
Let it stand for a few more minutes to completely cool and your ready to invert the cake pan on a wire rack or plate.
Glaze it up with your favorite icing and decorate as you prefer.
