  4. meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites and salt at medium speed until the eggs are frothy. add the brown sugar and increase the speed to high. keep beating until soft peaks form.
  5. add the vanilla and egg yolks to the chocolate mixture and stir to combine. add about ⅓ of the egg white mixture to the bowl, and gently fold it in using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula. add the rest of the egg whites and fold everything together (still gently) until it is uniform in color.
  6. pour the batter into the prepared springform pan and smooth the top. bake it for 15-18 minutes, until it is just barely set. let the cake cool completely in the pan.
