Black & White Angel Food Cake Recipe

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Sift together the flour, confectioners’ sugar and salt three times onto a sheet of parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the egg whites with an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium-low speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar, increasing speed to medium, and beat until whites are opaque and form very soft peaks. Continue beating while slowly adding the granulated sugar. Beat on medium high until the whites are thick, shiny and form medium-firm, fluffy peaks that droop over gently. Do not over beat.
  4. Sift 1/4 of the flour mixture over the beaten whites. Using a large rubber spatula, gently fold the dry ingredients into the whites. Repeat with remaining flour mixture, one quarter at a time.
  5. Scrape half the batter gently into a 10 x 4–inch angel food cake pan. To the remaining batter add unsweetened cocoa powder and gently fold in just until incorporated. Scrape chocolate batter on top of vanilla batter in the angel food cake pan.
  6. Smooth the top. Bake until the cake is light golden brown and the cake is springy when touched, about 40 minutes. Immediately invert the pan onto the counter if the pan has feet or if it doesn’t, invert the pan onto the neck of the bottle. Cool completely.
  7. To remove the cake, turn pan right side up and gently tap the bottom edge of the cake pan on the counter as you turn it until the cake loosens from the pan. If necessary, run a long, thin knife between the cake and the pan and around the inside of the tube to loosen the cake. Slip the cake from the pan and gently lift it up from the center of the pan and place it on a serving plate.
  8. Make Ganache:
  9. Place chopped chocolate in a medium bowl. In a small saucepan, warm heavy cream until steam rises from the top of it. Pour the warm cream over chopped chocolate and allow it to sit for 1 minute then whisk the chocolate and cream until smooth and shiny. Drizzle desired amount over cooled cake. Serve with fresh berries.
