Contest-Winning Chocolate Angel Food Cake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling
WOW! I have never made an angel food cake from scratch before. I grew up using the boxed mixes. Couldn't believe the difference. The recipe was extremely easy to follow and the taste was incredible. The texture was so light and delicate. One of the very best things I have ever baked in my 67 years. The whipped frosting while very good, is not my favorite but personal preference aside, I certainly can find no faults with this cake. One suggestion: I was unsure whether or not to refrigerate the cake with the whipped topping. Thank you!
A perfect cake everytime and get so many requests for this cake for family gatherings of any kind! Use an egg separator when preparing the cake batter. I have also substituted the Hershey's Special Dark cocoa for the regular cocoa.
This is hands-down one of the best cakes I’ve made angel food or otherwise. It is absolutely fantastic. Followed the recipe to a tee and it came out perfectly.

Can this cake be made the day before served? Can he icing be put on the day of serving?
My son says this cake tasts like hot chocolate, we though it was great without the frosting,
Like another reviewer, when I first tasted this cake, I thought there wasn't enough chocolate flavor. However, when I tried a piece with icing, that changed my opinion. I really liked the cake. There must be a lot of icing on the cake in the picture, because I had a great deal left over. I used the left over to dip strawberries, and it was excellent. I don't generally like icing, as I think it is too sweet, but I thought the icing made the cake.
I really hate to (makes farting sound) on a recipe, but this cake just didn't do it for me.I decided to leave out the last 2 tablespoons of sugar, but it was still too sweet for me and 1/4 cup of cocoa just isn't enough. I couldn't really taste the chocolate at all.However, the texture was amazing. I didn't make the frosting because the cake doesn't need it. Some whip cream would be more than enough to finish it off.
My chocolate angel food cake recipe is really easy- use a a f cake mix adding 1/3 C cocoa sifted into the mix and 1/2 t chocolate flavoring with the water. Bake as directed on the box. I like to frost it with chocolate cool whip. Yummy!
Love this cake!
