My Favorite Dessert Recipes

I have tested these recipes and refined them to my own tastes.  Feel free to use these,
but please credit my blog if you post these on your own blog or site.  Thank you.  : )

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

  •  1 1/2 cups THRIVE powdered sugar
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa
  • 2/3 cup THRIVE egg white powder
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 cup THRIVE white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Heat oven to 350F.  Sift powdered sugar, flour and cocoa together in a bowl two times and set aside. Mix egg white powder with water; I like to do this at least 2 hours to refrigerate the egg whites.  Add egg whites and cream of tartar to a larger bowl and mix on medium speed until foamy. Beat in granulated sugar a few tablespoons at a time. Turn to high speed and add salt and vanilla. Beat until stiff and glossy peaks form—do not underbeat!

Sift sugar and flour mixture over meringue a little at a time and fold in just until incorporated. Pour batter into ungreased angel food cake pan. Bake for 40 minutes or until cracks feel dry and skewer comes out clean. Turn pan upside down for about 2 hours before removing cake.

*To use regular egg whites, substitute 1 ½ cups egg whites for the THRIVE egg white powder and water.

Serve plain or with Strawberry Sauce (see recipe below)

Strawberry Sauce 

1 1/2 cups THRIVE freeze dried strawberries
3/4 cup THRIVE white sugar
1 teaspoon corn starch

In a small bowl, cover strawberries with 1 cup warm water.  Let sit 5-10 minutes until rehydrated.  Drain, reserving 3/4 cup of water. 
Combine strawberries, reserved water, sugar and cornstarch in a blender and puree.  Heat pureed mixture in a small saucepan over medium heat until thickened (approx. 5-10 minutes).  Allow mixture to cool in saucepan.  Refrigerate before serving.
