Chocolate Angel Food Cake with Strawberries & Whipped Creamby Michelle Karam
Sometimes I get this crazy insane craving for something sweet! Ok, who am I kidding with "sometimes"... it’s on a daily basis that I have a crazy insane craving for something sweet!
But as we all know, I am NOT a baker, so it’s gotta be super simple. How does this sound: Chocolate Angel Food Cake with fresh whipped cream and strawberries!
It’s light, it’s fluffy and it’s a fresh dessert. And the best part is, it doesn’t require a whole lotta “baking” skill to make!
Chocolate Angel Food Cake
- 1 ¼ cups egg whites
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. cream of tartar
- ¾ cup granulated sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ¾ cup flour (cake flour if you can)
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 5 tbs. cocoa powder
Beat the egg whites until they are frothy. Then add the salt and cream of tartar and continue to beat into soft peaks.
Gradually add in ¾ cup sugar. Add vanilla and continue to beat. In a bowl, sift the flour and cocoa and fold it into the egg white mixture. Bake in an ungreased bundt pan on 325 degrees for 50 minutes to 1 hour.
Slice some strawberries and whip some fresh cream and put them in between the layers.
Optional: Add in some almond extract, lemon extract or coconut extract… feel free to play around with the flavors!
Now if you absolutely can’t get in the kitchen and bake, run on over to your local supermarket and they most likely will have some angel food cake already prepared. If so, just layer on the fresh whipped cream and strawberries and you're in dessert heaven!
