Directions:
Put rack in the lower half of the oven. Preheat to 325. In a measuring cup put 1/2 c. flour, then 2 T of cornstarch, then the rest of the flour to measure 1 1/4 c. Mix in a small cup the salt and the cream of tarter. On a piece of wax paper or parchment paper, sift together flour cocoa and the 10x sugar. Sift three more times and set aside. In the largest mixer bowl you have, put the egg whites and whip slowly until they start to froth. Add the salt and cream of tarter and up the speed on the mixer to medium. As the whites start to form add the granulated sugar, one T at a time an up the speed again . Halfway through add the Kahlua slowly while still mixing. Up the speed and slowly add the rest of the sugar one T at a time until stiff peaks form. Remove from the mixer and add the flour cocoa mixture slowly folding it into the stiff whites, probably in 1/4's. Halfway through add the grated dark chocolate and continue to fold in the flour until it is all incorporated. Pour into and ungreased 10" tube pan. Level batter and ten cut through it with a knife to make sure there are no air pockets. Bake 1 hour or until it springs back when touched. Turn immediately onto the neck of a wine bottle and let it cool completely before removing it from the pan. Serve with strawberries or ice cream.
