Chocolate-Almond Angel Food Cake
From Cook's Country
The key to Chocolate-Almond Angel Food Cake is voluminous, stable egg whites. A mere speck of yolk precludes them from whipping to peaks. We had the best success with either cold or room-temperature egg whites. Cold whites whipped to the same volume as room-temperature eggs (they just took a few minutes longer). Cream of tartar offered some insurance against deflated whites. Its acidity helped stabilize the egg whites.
Serves 10 to 12
Do not use all-purpose flour. Our tasters unflatteringly compared a cake made with it to Wonder Bread. If your angel food cake pan does not have a removable bottom, line the bottom of the pan with parchment paper. In either case, do not grease the pan (or the paper).
