Chocolate Angel Food Cake

If this doesn't impress your health nut friends, nothing will. It has NO fat and only 70 calories per serving. It is soooo delicious you may be temped to eat just a bit more.


* 3/4 cup(s) flour, whole-wheat pastry
* 1 1/2 cup(s) sugar substitute
* 1/4 cup(s) cocoa powder, unsweetened
* 2 teaspoon espresso, instant
* 1 1/2 cup(s) egg white(s), (from about 10 eggs)
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* 2 teaspoon vanilla extract


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 10" angel food cake pan with parchment paper or coat with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar substitute, cocoa powder, and coffee three times. Set aside.

3. In a large metal bowl, beat the egg whites with the salt on high speed until they become stiff but not lumpy, 4 to 6 minutes. They should cling firmly to the side of the bowl when tilted. Add the vanilla, but do not mix.

4. With a spatula, gently fold one-third of the egg whites into the flour mixture. Repeat twice until all the egg whites are just combined, but not deflated.

5. Gently spread the batter into the prepared pan. Bake until the cake springs back when touched, 35 to 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and invert the pan onto its feet or the neck of a wine bottle. Let cool completely.

6. Gently run a long knife between the cake and the outer rim of the pan, pressing it firmly against the pan to prevent tearing the cake. Run the knife or a skewer around the inside of the tube. Invert the pan and remove cake.

Makes 8 servings.

Apple Walnut Cake

This cake is not only good tasting it's also healthy. Try it with or without the cream cheese frosting. I like it with a pat of butter while still warm from the oven.
It's also a great snack for the kids.


2 & 1/2 cup flour (or 1 & 1/4 of wheat flour and 1 & 1/4 white flour)

3 tsp soda

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 tsp salt

1 cup butter

2 tsp vanilla

2 eggs

1 tsp liquid sugar substitute

4 cups finely chopped apple (you can use grated apples or chunky applesauce)

1 cup walnuts


Mix dry ingredients;
add butter, vanilla, eggs, sugar substitute, and blend well.

Stir in apples and nuts,
bake in well-greased 9x13 pan at 375 degrees, 40-45 minutes.
