How to Make It

1. Step
Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C). Line an 8-inch (20-cm) square baking pan with parchment paper.
2. Step
In a large bowl, combine the graham cracker crumbs, 3 tablespoons of granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, and 6 tablespoons of melted butter until fully incorporated and the mixture looks rich and chocolaty.
3. Step
Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking pan and pack down to cover the bottom of the pan in an even layer.
4. Step
Bake for 10 minutes, then let cool.
5. Step
Reduce the oven temperature to 325˚F (160˚C).
6. Step
Separate the eggs into two large bowls.
7. Step
Add the remaining ¾ cup (150 G) of granulated sugar to the egg yolks and whisk until pale yellow.
8. Step
Add the remaining ½ cup (115 G) of melted butter and the vanilla and mix until fully incorporated.
9. Step
Sift in the flour and ⅓ cup (40 g) of cocoa powder and mix thoroughly.
10. Step
Slowly add the milk, stirring continuously, until a very wet batter forms. Set aside.
11. Step
Beat the egg whites with an electric hand mixer until frothy. Add the cream of tartar and continue beating until medium peaks form. Whisk ⅓ of the egg whites into the egg yolk batter, then gently fold in the remaining egg whites with a rubber spatula.
12. Step
Pour the batter over the graham cracker crust and bake for 40 minutes, or until the edges are set and the center jiggles slightly. Let cool for at least 1 hour.
13. Step
In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream until soft peaks form and the cream has doubled in volume.
14. Step
Sift in the remaining 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder and the powdered sugar and fold with a rubber spatula to incorporate.
15. Step
Invert the cooled cake onto a cutting board. Remove the parchment paper and flip the cake again so the graham cracker crust is on the bottom.
16. Step
Spread the chocolate whipped cream onto the cake.
17. Step
Slice and serve.
18. Step
Enjoy!
