  4. In another bowl, whisk the egg yolks, oil and vanilla, add to the dry ingredients along with the cocoa mixture and beat until well blended.
  5. In another large bowl and with clean beaters, beat egg whites and cream of tartar on high speed until stiff peaks form and gradually fold into the egg yolk mixture.
  6. Gently spoon batter into an ungreased 10-inch tube pan and cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets.
