"This is a yummy change to standard Angel Food cake. It has a light and delicate flavor and hits the spot of that chocolate craving. Note: for best flavor and texture, serve the cake on the day it's made and be sure to avoid any traces of yolk in the egg whites, which would prevent them from whipping to their fullest."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). If it does not have a removable bottom, line a 9 inch tube pan with parchment paper. Sift together the flour, cocoa and 3/4 cup of the sugar. Set aside. Measure 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture and toss with the grated chocolate.
  2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer set at low speed, beat egg whites until foamy. Increase mixer speed to medium, stir in cream of tartar and salt, and continue to beat until egg whites form soft peaks. Gradually mix in the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Stir in the vanilla and lemon juice.
  3. Gently fold the flour mixture into the beaten egg whites, then fold in the grated chocolate, stirring just until no white streaks remain.
  4. Gently scrape the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth the surface of the batter and tap the pan lightly to remove any air bubbles. Bake in center of the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until the surface springs back when touched. Cool completely, and sprinkle with confectioners' sugar before serving, if desired.

Oh My GOD!!!! I thought I was going to pass out from smelling it baking. It's awesome! I to added bittersweet chocolate, but in addition to the semi-sweet. I also grounded up some of the chocola...

This cake wasn't as good as I had hoped it would be from the other reviews. That didn't keep me from eating it all! It had a funky taste. (maybe the cocoa powder) I love angel food cake and I lo...

Loved this nice light and moist cake. Especially good for dieters. Had this for my daughter's birthday and everyone loved it. Florence

This is my new signature recipe! Thanks!!

Delicious! The most time consuming part of the recipe was whipping the egg whites--but it was well worth it. I will definitely make this again.
