Angel cake is not only no-cholesterol and no-fat but absolutely delicious
with a light, puffy texture. Here, the cappuccino flavor is so deep that
it's hard to believe that it lacks any fat at all. PREHEAT OVEN TO 375F
with rack in center of oven. Have an ungreased 10-inch tube pan ready.
Divide sugar in half. Sift 1/2 3 times. Set aside. Sift other half with
flour, cocoa and espresso powder 3 times. Set aside. Put egg whites in
4-quart grease-free bowl. Beat on low speed with mixer until frothy. Add
cream of tartar and salt. Increase speed to medium. Beat until whites are
whipped and hold their shape but are still soft and moist. Add 3/4 cup
sifted sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating well after each addition,
until all sugar is added. Add vanilla. Stop beating when whites have
increased in volume about fivefold, hold their shape and are shiny and
smooth. Gently but thoroughly fold in flour mixture, by thirds. Transfer to
baking pan. Smooth surface with spatula. Cut through batter in 6 places to
break any large air pockets. Bake until toothpick inserted in center comes
out clean, about 35-to-40 minutes, laying piece of foil lightly over top if
it gets too brown. Invert and rest tube on inverted custard cup. Prop pan
extensions with crumpled foil to secure pan. Cool completely. When cake is
completely cool, use flexible knife to loosen it from sides of pan. Invert
onto rack. Keep cake at room temperature 2 days, well covered, or frozen
(airtight) as long as 3 months. Be sure to thaw at room temperature in
wrapping. Frost. CAPPUCCINO FLUFF FROSTING: Put egg whites, sugar and corn
syrup in top of double boiler. Place over simmering water. Immediately use
mixer at medium speed to beat ingredients until fluffy, white and warmed
through, about 5 minutes. Stir in marshmallows. Once combined, beat at
lowest speed until marshmallows are melted and mixture is smooth. Remove
from heat. Stir in vanilla, cocoa, espresso and salt. Spread on top and
sides of cake. Yield: frosting for 1 10-inch tube cake.
