This chocolaty creation from Mary Relyea of Canastota, New York brings the look and taste of pure indulgence, but leaves the fat and calories at the door. A drizzling of rich chocolate glaze lends an elegant touch and will keep guests wanting more. With only 3 g of fat per slice, this is one treat you'll want to see year after year!

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 1 cup cake flour
  • 2 cups sugar, divided
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon McCormick® Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons half-and-half cream

Nutritional Facts

1 slice equals 235 calories, 3 g fat (2 g saturated fat), 2 mg cholesterol, 102 mg sodium, 49 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 5 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift together the flour, 1 cup sugar and cocoa twice; set aside.
  2. Add the cream of tartar, vanilla and salt to the egg whites. Beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, 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 40-50 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. For glaze, in a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and cream. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 12 servings.

"Went together easier than I expected and was a hit with everyone. I will probably cut down the sugar a little bit next time though; it bordered on too sweet for me."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 6, 2012

"So glad to find something that is low in fat and chocolate that tastes so good! I had to add more half and half to the glaze. It was way too thick to drizzle without it. Otherwise, perfect!"

"I really wanted to know if I could just add the cocoa to an angel food cake mix?"
