CHOCOLATE ANGEL FOOD CAKE

I love CHOCOLATE!

Chocolate cakes are a favorite of mine. This Chocolate Angel Food Cake I love, because it is a 'light' cake to enjoy when I don't want a heavy sweet chocolate cake.

I have served this unfrosted, dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled with a chocolate glaze. I have not tried a chocolate ganauche on this yet, but I think it would be excellent.
