Angel food cake is not my favorite (too sweet, too spongy) but I clipped this recipe because angel food cake IS my grandfather's favorite, and I figured we could all use a relatively light dessert after a big holiday meal. I made this for dessert on Easter and served it with strawberries. As angel food cakes go, I thought this was very good and very pretty, and it got my grandfather's stamp of approval as well. I really liked the glaze, and the addition of the chocolate.

I've made this cake several times. However, I really took the easy route and used a mix. (I have no desire to make it from scratch or use for left-over yolks.) I just added the dark cocoa (Hershey's) to the last half of the batter. No problem and it was great!

This cake was delicious!! I used 3 tbsp of dutch processed cocoa, and served it with a simple chocolate ganache (poured over the cake while still warm and served immediately). Everyone loved it and I have several requests to make it again and again.

This was a nice change to the traditional style angel food cake. Next time I would use superfine sugar as my cake had a slight grittiness to it, however I was the only one who noticed it. I served this with strawberries and whipped cream which were perfect garnishes. A light dessert with coffee that I will repeat.

This was my first attempt at making an angel food cake and I was so pleased with the results. So as not to have a dozen egg yolks to deal with, I used the egg whites that come in a carton and that worked just fine. I will definitely make it again!
