I love strawberries. They are, in my opinion, one of the best things about summer. And I love strawberry short cake. I used to make my own angel food cake but haven't done so in a while. But when I saw this recipe for Chocolate Angel Food Cake, I was inspired.
The act of whipping up the egg whites was fun! My mixer got a definite work out with this recipe! Ha! My one mistake with this one, however, was not sifting the powdered sugar. When I measured it, it looked fine. But as I combined it and whisked it with the cocoa, I realized there were tiny pieces still hanging on together.
This cake came out well but I was not blown away by it. I guess it wasn't chocolate-y enough - though it shouldn't have needed to be any more chocolate-y. I don't know. It fun to make and I'm glad to have tried something new!
