Chocolate Angel Food Cake with Strawberries
Chocolate Angel Food Cake with Strawberries is a healthier option that is light, fluffy, and loaded with the chocolate flavor. Pair with a side of strawberries for an extra layer of flavor.
- 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
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.
