Last week we celebrated Grandma SMS (Sugar Mamma Sherry's) Birthday. One of her favorite desserts is a ravishing Angel Food Cake, drizzled with dark chocolate syrup. But since I was in charge of the treat portion of the meal, I of coarse decided to change it up abit. Instead going for a Dark Chocolate Angel Food Cake, that's right, dark chocolate going throughout the cake. It was an incredible twist on the classic, still light and airy yet full of flavor. But I do have a confession to make! Shhhhh. Don't tell Grandma SMS, but....It only required one box of Angel Food Cake mix (follow direction, and ingredients on the box), then all I need to do was mix in 1/2 cup of dark chocolate cocoa powder and cook as per packaged directions. Easy Peasy, I know! The hardest thing about this recipe was borrowing an Angel Food Cake pan.
So if you are looking for a "light" dessert for your holiday season, this would be absolutely perfect. Garnish with strawberries and mint. Superb.
Dark Chocolate Angel Food Cake
1 box Angel Food Cake (use ingredients that your box requires)
1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder
Mix all of the ingredients together, pour into Angel Food Cake Pan. Cook until toothpick comes out clean, approximately 50 - 60 minutes.
I was inspired by this recipe, and if your feeling freaky you may consider making the Chocolate Glaze as well.
