Chocolate Angel Food Cake Recipe

Ingredients:

Cake Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 cup cake flour
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar

Frosting Ingredients:

1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup baking cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

Directions:

1. Sift together confectioners' sugar, flour and cocoa three times; set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl; beat egg whites, cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form.

3. Add sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, beating until stiff peaks form.

4. Gradually fold in cocoa mixture, about a fourth at a time.

5. Spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Carefully run a metal spatula or knife through batter to remove air pockets.

6. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 375 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until the top springs back when lightly touched.

7. Immediately invert pan; cool completely. Run a knife around edges and center tube to loosen; remove cake.

8. In a mixing bowl, combine the first five frosting ingredients; cover and chill for 1 hour.

9. Beat until stiff peaks form. Spread over the top and sides of cake.
