This cake was very moist. More so than the regular angel food cakes. My husband wanted a chocolate angel food cake for his birthday and before his birthday I decided to give it a trial run. My husband is a chocaholic and I knew it would be a real test if I make it in the future. When I made it he helped me and for the color of the cake being very light brown we weren't to sure about the flavor. Don't let the color of the cake interfer with your decision as it was very chocolately and a hit with my husband. I didn't ice the cake but we tried taking some chocolate syrup used on ice cream and drizzled it over individual slices of cake. Now that made it even better. I am making that cake for my husband's birthday on Feb 9th. It was an excellent cake.

It took me two tries to get this right, but it was worth it. The first time I greased the pan and 5 minutes after I set in on the bottle it toppled out of the pan, onto the floor and left me with a huge mess to clean up. So don't grease the pan. :) The second time I read instructions better.

I do not have a proper AFC pan so I made 2 dozen 'cupcakes' in a regular muffin tin with cupcake papers and cooked for 12-14 minutes, then I put a cooling rack over the pan and flipped it leaving the cakes upside down. They turned out perfectly, just make sure to rotate them periodically if you don't want lines I also skipped the sifting (I don't have a sifter) and pressed my spatula against the side of the bowl of dry ingredients to break up any clumps. Make sure you add the dry ingredients slowly and in small quantities or the weight will collapse the mixture.

This recipe was real challenge for me, but it turned out GREAT!! I prepared it for 15 of my coworkers for a birthday cake and they all loved it. I did have some Cool Whip and dry Hersey's Cocoa on the side for garnishment. Thanks!

I don't know what happened, but my cake turned out quite bad. At first it was foamy liuke mirangue should be... but when I added the sugar the egg whites started to deflate. The cake turne out to be half the size as an angel food cake should be and it was very dense. I don't know if I did something wrong, but it didn't turn out like it was supposed to.

I made this for my daugther's third birthday last March. It was very nice. I filled it with sliced strawberries and frosted it with chocolate whipped cream icing. (I used 92g flour, 29g cocoa and 300g sugar and cooked it at 190C.)

Excellent cake! Texture and rise perfect - really seemed to melt in your mouth. Take the time to sift as directed and you'll be very pleased. Thank you!
