1-⅓ cups cake flour
2 tsps. Instant espresso powder
¼ tsp salt
Pout all 3 in bowl and whisk to aerate and blend. Set aside.
In a mixer bowl, put
12 egg whites (about 1-¾ cups) – reserve yolks for another use
Whip the whites until forthy, then slowly add
1 tsp cream of tartar
Blend in at medium speed. Then increase speed to high and slowly add
1-¾ cups sugar
Continue to beat until stiff peaks.
1-½ tsp vanilla
1 tsp lemon juice
At low speed, slowly add the flour. When all blended in, remove from mixer and fold in ¾ cups mini chocolate chips – try not to deflate the whites but blend the chips in well.
Put all into an ungreased angel food pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 degrees until an inserted toothpick comes out clean – you may get melted chocolate on it but do your best to make sure the cake part is done.
Remove from over and cool completely UPSIDE DOWN in pan.,
