Paul Newmans Chocolate Orange Angel Food CakeFrom peetabear 8 years ago
- 4 ounces orange-flavored dark chocolate shopping list
- 12 large egg whites shopping list
- 1 cup all-purpose flour shopping list
- 1 1/4 cups sugar, divided shopping list
- 1/2 teaspoon salt shopping list
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice shopping list
- 3 teaspoons vanilla extract shopping list
- 1 tablespoon orange rind, grated shopping list
How to make it
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Make sure a 10" x 4" tube pan is clean, dry and free of grease.
- Grate the chocolate bars on the fine holes of a cheese grater, NOT a teeny-holed citrus grater.
- (Make sure you do find orange-flavored dark chocolate-- it is not very difficult to find, and absolutely essential to the recipe).
- Separate the eggs, and let the egg whites come to room temperature; about 15 minutes.
- Sift 1 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of the sugar, and the salt onto a piece of waxed paper.
- Sift them together a total of three times.
- Beat the egg whites until frothy.
- Add the lemon juice and continue beating.
- Sprinkle the remaining cup of sugar, 1/4 cup at a time, over the egg whites and continue beating at medium speed until the egg whites are glossy and form soft peaks that bend over at the top.
- Do not overheat, or the egg whites will lose their volume.
- Sift 1/4 cup of the dry ingredients over the egg whites and fold.
- Gently stir in the vanilla extract and orange rind.
- Alternately fold in the chocolate and remaining dry ingredients, working in small batches, until just incorporated.
- Pour the batter into the tube pan and bake for 45 minutes, until the top is lightly browned.
- A knife inserted in the center of the cake should come out clean.
- Remove from the oven and invert the pan.
- Allow the cake to cool for 30 to 45 minutes.
- Run a knife around the edges of the pan and tube to loosen the cake.
- You can serve this as is, or with a little whipped cream, or ice cream
