Cocoa Angel Food Cake Recipes

Source:  Editor:  Read:

Cocoa Angel Food Cake
1 1/2 cups egg whites (about 12 egg whites)
3/4 cup sifted whole−wheat pastry flour or sifted unbleached flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup honey
Fresh fruit (such as strawberries, raspberries, blueberries
or peaches)
Place the egg whites in a 5− or 6−quart bowl. Let stand at room
temperature for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, sift the flour and cocoa powder together 4 times; set
aside. Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites on high speed
until foamy. Add the cream of tartar and vanilla. Then beat on
medium speed until the egg whites form soft peaks. Add the honey,
1 tablespoon at a time, and continue beating on medium speed until
the egg whites form stiff peaks but are not dry.
Sift 1/4 of the flour mixture over the egg whites and fold in using
a wire whisk or large spatula. Repeat sifting and folding in the
flour 3 more times.
Spoon the batter into an ungreased 10" tube pan with a removable
bottom. Use a thin knife to cut through the batter to remove any
large air pockets. Bake at 350F for 30 to 35 minutes or until the
cake springs back when lightly touched. Invert the pan onto a wire
rack and let cool for at least 1 1/2 hours. Then remove the cake
from the pan. Slice and serve with the fresh fruit.
