How to Make Chocolate Angel Food Cake

  • 3Fold the dry ingredients into the egg whites a little at a time until completely blended.

  • 5Bake in a PREHEATED oven for 30-35 minutes.
  • 6Remove from oven and cool inverted (upside down on top of a glass bottle (I use an old soda bottle) or something) Cool for a couple of hours.
  • 7Serve on a serving platter that has been dusted with powdered sugar or bakers sugar. Serve with Ice cream or Whipped cream or a warm custard or pudding with fruit. Or your favorite warm dessert sauce like caramel, fudge, strawberry, rum, or brandy ...etc. Or just serve plain with powdered sugar dusting.
