Equipment

  • Bundt Pan

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sifted cake flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 12 large egg whites
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups fresh sliced strawberries
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the cake flour, cocoa powder, and ¾ cup of the sugar.
  • Using an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment or a hand mixer, beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until foamy.
  • Sprinkle the cream of tartar over the egg whites and continue to beat until they hold a soft peak and then add the vanilla extract and gradually blend in the remaining ¾ cup of sugar about 2 tablespoons at a time.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and using a spatula gradually fold in the flour mixture sprinkling in about ¼ cup at a time.
  • Pour the batter into an ungreased 9-inch tube pan and bake until the cake springs back when pressed with your finger; about 30 minutes.
  • Let cool in the pan for 1 hour, then loosen the cake from the sides and center of the pan with a knife before unmolding.
  • Combine the strawberries with 2 tablespoons of sugar in a medium bowl and toss gently to coat each slice. Let the strawberries stand for about 30 minutes to sweeten and serve over the chocolate angel food cake.
