Chocolate Angel Food Cake

[Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti]

This guilt-free chocolate angel food cake is moist and light, and flavored with juicy orange and deep dark espresso.

Notes: Do not grease the pan here. The cake needs to grab onto the sides to rise properly. As you stir in the first amount of beaten egg whites into the bloomed chocolate mixture, make sure it's smooth before continuing. Take care not to deflate the egg whites as you fold into the batter. Take care inverting the pan upside down. Don't set the pan on a wine bottle—my cake fell out that way.
