Transform an ordinary angel food cake into a creamy orange filled delight. Orange sherbet fills the hollowed out cavity and is then frozen again for a sweet treat on a summers afternoon.
1 1/2 cups Powdered sugar
3/4 cup Cake flour
1/4 cup Cocoa
1 1/2 cups Egg whites (about 12)
1 1/2 tsp Cream of tartar
1 cup Granulated sugar
1/4 tsp Salt
3 cups Orange sherbet, softened
Oven Temp ~ 375°
Baking Time ~
Pan Type ~ 10 inch tube pan
Sift together powdered sugar, flour and cocoa.
Beat egg whites and cream of tartar in large bowl on medium speed until foamy. Beat in granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time, on high speed, adding salt with the last addition of sugar. Continue beating until stiff and glossy. Do not under-beat.
Sprinkle cocoa mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, over the meringue, folding in just until cocoa mixture disappears. Spread Chocolate Orange Angelfood Cake batter into ungreased tube pan. Gently cut through batter with metal spatula.
Bake Chocolate Orange Cake until cracks feel dry and top springs back when touched lightly. Invert pan onto metal funnel or glass bottle for about 2 hours or until cake is completely cool. Remove from pan.
Slice off top of cake about 1 inch down, set aside. Cut down into cake 1 inch from outer edge and 1 inch from edge of hole, leaving substantial "walls" on each side. Remove cake within cuts with curved knife or spoon, being careful to leave a base of cake 1 inch thick. Spoon sherbet into cake cavity, smooth up. Replace top of cake. Cover and freeze about 3 hours or until firm.
