Cocoa Angel Food Cake

Cocoa Angel Food Cake

"'This delicious chocolaty cake is so simple, I've made it hundreds of times,' writes Lorraine Olson of Madison, Minnesota. 'I never frost it. Instead I serve it with whipped topping, ice cream or sometimes even plain. The recipe won first prize at our county fair.'"
