Coffee Chocolate Chip Angel Food Cake

The first time I made an angel food cake, it fell.  I chalked it up to “angel food is hard” and didn’t try again.  And that was a mistake.  

Because, this year, motivated by a freezer full of leftover egg whites, I tried again.  And my cakes have turned out great—plain, lavender vanilla and now a coffee chocolate chip angel food cake.  Never give up after one try, I guess!

Just baked cake!

This particular cake was inspired by Nielsen-Massey, who recently sent me a bottle of their coffee extract.  Nielsen-Massey is well-known for their exceptional vanilla, and it was fun to learn about some of their other flavorings like chocolate, lemon and rose water  But I was especially excited to be able to experiment with coffee extract.

The reason for all the excitement?  Well, I love coffee.  And I’d enjoy using it more in recipes.  But I hate making little servings of extra strong coffee, then worrying my recipe will be too wet.  And, jaded by old memories of bad instant coffee, I can’t bring myself to use that either.

The answer?  Guess it must be coffee extract!  It was super easy to add to the Coffee Chocolate Chip Angel Food Cake and gave it a nice coffee flavor.  Thanks Nielsen-Massey!

Ingredients
  1. • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  2. • 1 cup cake flour (see substitution below)
  3. • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  4. • 1 1/2 cups egg whites (from about 12 large eggs), at room temperature
  5. • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  6. • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
  7. • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  8. • 4 teaspoons coffee extract
  9. • 2/3 c mini chocolate chips
  10. whipped cream for serving
Instructions
  1. Sift together the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and salt.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, whip the egg whites. When they are foamy, add the cream of tartar and lemon juice.
  3. Continue to whip the egg whites until they just begin to hold their shape in soft peaks. Whip the remaining 1 cup of sugar into the whites, 1/4 cup at a time. Do not overwhip; the egg whites should not be overly dry or stiff. Mix in the vanilla and coffee extracts.
  4. Gently and gradually fold the flour and sugar mixture into the whites. When almost incorporated, add the mini-chocolate chips and continue folding.
  5. Spoon the batter in the tube pan, smooth the top, and bake at 350 F for 45 minutes. To be extra sure it is done, you can check for an internal temperature of 205-209 F.
  6. Remove from the oven and immediately invert the tube pan. If the pan doesn’t have “feet”, set it over the neck of a heavy bottle or overturned metal funnel, using the center hole of the pan to hold the cake, until cool.
  7. Serve with whipped cream, or ice cream, or caramel sauce. Or all of these. 🙂
Notes
  1. Instead of cake flour, you can take 1 cup of all-purpose flour, remove 2 Tablespoons and add in 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch.
  2. The pictures show a cake made in my smaller vintage cake pan (thanks, Grandma!) which holds exactly half of the recipe.

    I would love to try the coffee extract in several different things ~ I’d like to make a coffee cake with the coffee flavor in the cake & icing. And my favorite thing to try would be coffee flavored ice cream ~ I love coffee ice cream but it’s really calorie laden. With a coffee extract, I could blend coconut almond milk, monks fruit sweetener, and the coffee extract, then freeze, for a healthier icy treat!

    A coffee cake with a mild coffee flavor sounds like a great idea. I also think chocolate would be good with a hint of coffee flavor.

    i didn’t even know coffee extract existed! what a great way to use it–i can’t remember the last time i made an angel food cake. i’d definitely use it.
    In some chocolate chip cookies first.

  4. Susan Christy

    Oh that looks good!! I’ll use coffee extract in my chocolate frosting. I’ve been baking for years – how did I not know about coffee extract? Anxious to try it!

  5. Louise

    Kudos to you Inger for giving Angel Food Cake one more try!!! I’m loving the thought of Coffee and Chocolate Chips in the cake. Extract is probably better in this case.

    Thank you so much for sharing, Inger…

    P.S. Don’t forget, October 10th is Natinal Angel Food Cake Day!!!

    I’ve never used coffee extract in a recipe but this one looks absolutely this die for so this recipe would defiantly be my first challenge!
