      Ok, hope this doesn't turn into a recipe swapping post. But the following recipe has twice as many egg whites than ricebowl's recipe below, hence much more like angel food cake, instead of a cheesecake.

        I love this recipe. Made it for the family and my mother-in-law (an excellent baker herself) is still talking about it several months later.

          I've tried Diana's recipe as well and the cake turned out fabulous. It's like a sponge cake texture which is what I like.

            It would be great if someone who made this cake would include the conversions they used. =) Thanks!

              If you're looking to convert weight to volume, you might be disappointed.
              Volume is iffy, on things such as flour. Two people can measure out a cup of flour, and they won't be the same. Depends if they sift first, and how they scoop, tap (should never tap!), level off.

              Scales are becoming less and less expensive. I think it's a worthy investment.

              here's conversions. The cups to grams towards the bottom of the page, ie flour , caster sugar etc, cocoa are approximate only.

          Thanks ricebowl, made this last night and really enjoyed it. I didn't have cream of tartar and used skim milk, but I think it still turned out great. It took maybe 20 min. to put it all together. This is much ligher than traditional cheesecake with I'm sure much fewer fat and calories yet it still really hits the spot. I put golden rasberry jam on top of mine and it was delicious.
