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.

  1. I was excited to see this recipe as I was about to start looking for egg recipes!
    It looks so delicious!

  2. What an awesome idea to freeze the egg whites like that! And I loooooove angel food cake, so this is a keeper for me :D

  3. I made a chocolate angel food cake for my daughters bday in March. They are fun to make! That's a great tip about the egg whites. I'm going to have to try that! I really like the flavor of a homemade angelfood cake. The boxed mixes have a processed flavor to it, just like the regular cake mixes and canned frostings!

  4. Carol, I know what you mean about processed flavors~ Once you have the REAL deal, you'll never go back!

  5. So often I shy away from recipes because "what am I going to do with all those leftover egg white/yolks/etc." Thanks for posting a practical solution! Now, I just need to buy a few ice cube trays.

  6. That looks so tasty, and yet, I still can't get behind angel food cake. (sigh)

  7. Yum I think this may just be my next venture into the cake baking world.

  8. I was looking for some more low-fat dessert recipes and this looks like it would actually taste good. :)

  9. I've never made angel food cake either! I LOVE the idea of chocolate angel food cake...I recently made a fast, easy and good dessert using angel food cake, so now I MUST make it again using this recipe instead of buying a cake! Yippee!!

  10. Just saw this while reading your yummy lemon cake post. Oh the delicious memories of this cake with the shaved chocolate. mmmmm.
