Chocolate flavor cakes and desserts are kids’ favorite. To make the taste of this Chocolate Chiffon Cake richer, this recipe adds chocolate chips inside and on top of the cake.

To reduce the chance of chocolate chips inside the cake falling to the bottom, you need to coat them  with flour before folding them into the batter. For chocolate chips used as topping, you may omit  this step.

4 Whisk egg whites on low speed until large bubbles are formed. Add in cream of tartar, whisk until tiny bubbles. Add in sugar gradually, whisk until stiff peak (the peaks will point straight up and hold). (Reminder: Egg whites and equipment used to beat egg whites must be grease-free and water-free (including egg yolk). It is advisable to clean the egg shells and equipment with dishwasher detergent, then dry with a clean cloth. Use a clean small bowl to separate the egg yolk and egg white, if the egg yolk cracks, don’t use that egg white.)
