Recipe For Chocolate Angel Food Cake

I really like the fact that my Chocolate Angel Food Cake is fat free. It means I can enjoy more than one slice at a time, ignoring how much sugar actually goes into it. Dave and I devoured this cake in 24 hours.

Head straight on to the recipe for Chocolate Angel Food Cake ♥

A few weeks ago I was helping my cousin’s wife book their flights to Europe. There was not much involved in doing the booking. The first flight was a direct flight to Amsterdam from Cape Town. The second flight is to Paris. And the return flight back to Cape Town had to be direct. We were playing around, looking at the prices for the various classes. Once the dates and seat options had been decided upon I went ahead and processed the booking. Right at the end I made an error, putting the name in for the second passenger incorrectly. I had the first name where the surname needed to be. Of course I could not make a change at this stage and so decided to wait till the booking went off the profile before starting over. While waiting I added my cousin to the rewards program.

Today’s inspiration ♥ Recipe For Chocolate Angel Food Cake ♥ can be found on Lavender and Lime Click To Tweet

It was only after I did this that I noticed the flight dates were incorrect. So, my error saved me from sending them overseas 2 days earlier than planned. I started over, getting the dates correct and managed to process the booking in no time at all. That was one error I was really grateful for. I also made an error the first time I made my Chocolate Angel Food Cake. Once I had 10 egg whites saved up in the freezer I had a second go at baking it. I love this cake and it is going to become a regular in our home as I tend to go through a lot of egg yolks.

  1. “Needs to be eaten within 24 hours of baking.” It’s chocolate. Is this really an issue?!

  5. What a delicious looking result! I wonder if this would work with aquafaba (bean water) instead of the egg whites? Hmmmm… I might have to give it a go!

  11. Angel food cake is one of my favorite desserts but I have never explored the chocolate option before! No wonder you and Dave downed this cake in 24 hours. I always manage to convince myself that will all those eggs in it, it is a high-protein post-workout snack!
