Ingredients

1 1/2 cup egg whites (10-12 large eggs)

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 cup flour

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 ounces milk chocolate, shredded

2 teaspoons vanilla

Directions

Place the egg whites and cream of tartar in a metal mixing bowl. Beat until stiff peaks form and the whites are glossy. Add the vanilla and beat well.

In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, powdered sugar, cocoa, baking soda, salt, and shredded chocolate. Fold 1/2 cup of the powdered mixture into the egg whites. Repeat until all the flour mixture is incorporated into the eggs.

Pour batter into a non-stick angel food cake or bunt cake pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 -35 minutes or until cake springs back. Run a knife around the edge of the pan and invert the pan onto a funnel or cup and allow to cool for 2 hours. Remove the cake from the pan and serve with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings.
