I love the delicate, spongy, low-fat goodness that is an angel food cake. Why not make a chocolate one? I tried making my first angel food cake this weekend (chocolate flavored) and I have to say…it turned out as good as any angel food cake I’ve had anywhere. As long as I have the massive amount of required eggs on hand, there’s absolutely no reason to buy one in a store anymore.
The one thing that took me by surprise in making this cake was how lonnnnnnnnnnnng it takes to beat the egg white and sugar mixture to get it the desired degree of stiffness. I served this with fresh whipped cream and strawberries. My son is an absolute cake addict, and he ate this faster than I’ve seen him eat any other cake – bar none.
