Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 195 calories, 1 g fat (trace saturated fat), 2 mg cholesterol, 64 mg sodium, 43 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 4 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift flour and cocoa together twice; set aside.
  2. Add the cream of tartar, extracts and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff glossy peaks form and sugar is dissolved. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.
  3. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  4. Run a knife around side and center tube of pan. Remove cake to a serving plate.
  5. For icing, in a small bowl, beat the confectioners’ sugar, cocoa, sour cream, milk and vanilla until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 servings.

Sounds yummy. I wonder...could this be made with Splenda instead of sugar? Also, what about regular white flour instead of "cake" flour?

I made this today and it is sooooooooo good!! The kids and I ate almost the whole thing. I didn't add the icing, it was sweet and yummy without it. I will be making this again and again!!

Just a reply as to what you do with 12 egg yolks. I usually use whipped cream to top cream pies, so I save the three egg whites in a baggie. Also when I make pudding. When I have enough frozen, I thaw them and make an angelfood cake. Works really well. You could also cook the egg yolks in boiling water until firm, cool and grate over creamed asparagus or dried beef sandwiches. MMMMN, GOOD!
