Low Calorie Recipe

A light and delectable chocolate angel food cake made with the usual egg whites plus unsweetened cocoa powder and if desired, sweetener in place of sugar.

Chocolate angel food cake


7/8 cup flour
3 to 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup Stevia
1-1/2 teaspoon chocolate extract
1 teaspoon baking powder
1-1/2 cup egg whites at room temperature (about 11 eggs)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar

Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Chill a large mixing bowl in the freezer for 15 minutes.

Sift the flour, cocoa, 1/4 cup sugar or Splenda and the baking powder together. Set aside.

Add egg whites to the chilled mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until slightly thickened. Add the salt, chocolate extract and cream or tartar. Beat for 2 additional minutes. Slowly add the remaining sugar and continue to beat for 2-3 minutes, or until the egg whites are thick with small peaks that fold over. Fold flour a little at a time into egg white mixture. Use a whisk, not an electric mixer. Be sure to preserve the airy volume of this recipe low calorie dessert. Pour the batter carefully into a dry, clean angel food pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until the top of the cake feels dry.

Remove from oven and turn pan upside down over an inverted funnel. Let cake rest upside down for 1-1/2 hours. Turn right side up, cut around the inside of the pan and remove the bottom of the pan. Serve your recipe low calorie dessert as is, or with a light whipped topping and fresh berries.

P.S. October 10th is Angel Food Cake Day.
