  1. Grease a 23cm or 24cm diameter cake tin with butter and dust with flour (or for more complex shapes, you can use cake release spray).
  2. Pour the oil, water, and icing sugar into a bowl and mix for around 2–3 minutes. Then add the egg yolks one at a time, after each addition mix with the mixer to combine the ingredients.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, orange zest and mix.
  4. Add the baking powder to the flour, mix with a spoon and sift into the wet ingredients. Mix briefly with an electric mixer to combine the ingredients. 
  5. Put the egg whites into a clean, dry bowl and beat with an electric mixer to a foam, stiff enough to hold its shape. Set aside one heaped tbsp of the froth and add half of the remaining froth to the batter and mix with a spatula. Add the remaining foam and mix again with a spatula. 
  6. Pour about 1/4 of the mixture into the reserved egg whites, sift in the cocoa and mix with a spatula to form a smooth batter.
  7. Pour a little of the light mixture into the prepared cake tin, then a little of the dark mixture, alternating until all the mixture is used up.
  8. Place the cake tin in the preheated oven. Bake at 180°C for approximately 55–60 minutes. I baked on the lowest oven level.
  9. Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool for about 20 minutes. Remove from the tin and set aside to cool completely.
  10. Sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.

Happy baking :)
