11 Chocolate Angel Food Cake

Chocolate Angel Food CakeThis is the first time I have EVER made an angel food cake from scratch.

It was very, very easy and very, very good!

I can eat this every day~

It all started with making ice cream.



Most of the ice cream recipes that I have tried are custard based, which means that I only use egg yolks.

Which also means a lot of un~used egg whites.

A blogger tip was to freeze them. I just crack an egg, and separate it right over the ice cube tray. Each egg fills one cube. Works like a charm.



I asked my friends, "What do I do with egg whites?"

Make macaroons
an angel food cake
homemade marshmallows
chocolate mousse or
use them for a facial.





The whites are beaten until they reach a soft peak

and then sugar is added, a little at a time,

until stiff peaks are formed.

Look at this mountain range...




Sifted powdered sugar, flour and cocoa are folded in

and poured into an ungreased tube pan.

A knife is run through the batter to catch any large air pockets.








Baked on the lowest rack of the oven and cooled.










This looks good already....











I love the crispy top...









And the light, airy center!










A dollop of whip cream doesn't hurt one bit...







This is a light, milk chocolate cake that is sure to please anyone.

Plus, it's low~fat.
