Chocolate Orange Angelfood Cake Recipe

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.

Chocolate Orange Angelfood Cake

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
Move oven rack to lowest position. Preheat the oven.

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.

Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?

Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.

Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.

And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!

Nothing says "I Love You" more than a surprise dessert made from one of our homemade cake recipes.

Suppling Tips for Healthy Homemade Cakes

When Baking with Butter:

Room temperature butter in the cake batter is one of the biggest cake baking mistakes. In fact, butter must be below 68° to trap air molecules and build structure. Otherwise, the fat will liquefy and the cake will be flat. To get “cool” butter, cut the chilled butter into chunks and let it sit in a bowl for 5 minutes before beating.

When Mixing Cake Batter:

You cannot over beat the eggs, sugar and butter, but you can over beat the flour. If you do, gluten will form and you will be making a quick bread instead of layer cake. Beat the flour just until there are no visible signs of dry flour, but not until the batter is completely smooth.

Cake Flour:

Cake flour is milled from soft wheat that has a lower gluten content and higher starch content than all-purpose flour. It helps to ensure a fluffy texture in cakes and pastries. A substitute for cake flour is to use all-purpose flour, but reduce the amount by 2 tablespoons per cup.

Green Food:

The food choices that we make every day have a profound effect on the environment. From farm to spoon, growing our food, processing it and transporting it all use tremendous amounts of energy, water and chemicals. By making just a few small changes in our eating and buying habits, we can greatly reduce this impact. When we eat green, we help the environment by reducing global warming pollution and help ourselves by eating fresh and healthy food. Eat local from farmers in your own neighborhood!
