Everyone I know loves the light airy taste of angel food cupcakes, and they like it even more when you combine that light airy taste with chocolate.  These chocolate angel food cupcakes are delicious plain or you can top them with a chocolate glaze or strawberry preserves for added flavor.

Ingredients

1  cup flour
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa (powdered)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups egg whites (from approximately 10 large eggs)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon red food coloring

Chocolate Angel Food Cupcake Recipe Directions

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

Combine egg whites with salt, and beat until foamy.  Add cream of tartar, and continue to beat until stiff.

Stir in sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla. 

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, cocoa, and baking powder.  Fold flour mixture into egg whites gradually. 

Spoon batter into cupcake liners until 1/2 full.  Bake for approximately 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool cupcakes completely in pan.
