"This delicious chocolaty cake is so simple, I've made it hundreds of times," writes Lorraine Olson of Madison, Minnesota. "I never frost it. Instead I serve it with whipped topping, ice cream or sometimes even plain. The recipe won first prize at our county fair."

Ingredients

Nutritional Facts

One piece equals 150 calories, trace fat (0 saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 104 mg sodium, 33 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 2 starch.

Directions

  1. Let egg whites stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift the flour, 1/2 cup sugar and cocoa together twice; set aside.
  2. Add cream of tartar and salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining 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 the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350° for 50-60 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. Yield: 12 servings.
