1. Butter and flour a bunt pan.
  2. In a bowl, mix the egg whites, salt, and 3 teaspoons of water and beat until you have peaks.
  3. In another bowl, combine the yolks and sugar. Add softened butter and combine. Next, add flour, vanilla packet, and ½ cup of milk a little at a time.
  4. Combine with the egg white mixture. Add the rest of the milk and combine well.
  5. Using only half of the batter, put four large spoonfuls into the prepared cake pan so that there is a space between each dollop of batter (like points on a compass).
  6. Add cocoa powder to remaining half of the batter. Mix well and fill the open spaces in the pan with the chocolate batter. This should give you an alternating vanilla/chocolate pattern.
  7. Take a knife and cut from the chocolate into the plain batter twice on each side to merge the two flavors. Bake at 300F for 30 minutes or until the knife comes out clean.
