Cappuccino Angel Food Cake

Here is a devilishly low in fat angel food cake!



Italian Meringue


  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Cake: Sift flour into a dry mixing bowl. Set aside.
  3. Sift sugar, cinnamon and cappuccino coffee powder together into a separate bowl. Set aside.
  4. Using a copper or stainless steel bowl, beat egg whites first until foamy. At this point add salt and cream of tartar if using stainless steel bowl and then beat egg whites to soft peaks.
  5. Gently fold in sugar cappuccino powder mixture into egg whites with rubber spatula.
  6. Next, fold flour in to egg white and sugar mixture in 2 batches.
  7. Now, gently fold in vanilla and almond extract into batter. When all has been incorporated, pour batter into a 10-inch non-stick tube pan and smooth out top.
  8. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake is creamy coffee brown color and top springs back when gently touched with finger and/or a wooden skewer comes out clean.
  9. Cool cake upside down in pan.
  10. When cool, remove cake from pan and frost with Italian Meringue and sprinkle with cocoa powder if desired.
  11. Italian Meringue: In a small heavy-bottom pan dissolve sugar with water over low heat. Increase heat to medium and cook until sugar syrup reaches 239 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
  12. As sugar syrup approaches desired temperature, beat egg whites at room temperature in a copper or stainless steal bowl until foamy; add cream of tartar if using stainless bowl and beat until soft peaks form. Slowly pour hot syrup onto egg whites and beat on high speed until bowl feels cool to the touch.
  13. Use immediately or refrigerate in a covered container for up to 24 hours.
