Chocolate Angel Food Cake with Raspberry Sauce Recipe

Chocolate Angel Food Cake with Raspberry Sauce Recipe

"When I needed a light dessert for guests who were on a restricted diet, I combined two of my favorite recipes to create this chocolate cake with berry sauce," says Lana Drum, Maryville, Tennessee.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package (16 ounces) angel food cake mix
  • 1-1/4 cups cold water
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • RASPBERRY SAUCE:
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1 package (12 ounces) frozen unsweetened raspberries, thawed
  • 1-1/4 cups reduced-fat whipped topping

Directions

  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water and cocoa. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  • 2. Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until lightly browned and entire top appears dry. Immediately invert pan; cool completely, about 1 hour.
  • 3. In a small saucepan, combine sugar substitute and cornstarch; add raspberries. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Cook and stir 2 minutes longer or until the mixture is thickened. Remove saucepan from the heat; cool.
  • 4. Run a knife around side and center tube of cake pan; remove cake to a serving platter. Strain the raspberry sauce; spoon over cake sliced. Serve with whipped topping. Yield: 12 servings.
