The Galley Gourmet: Chocolate Angel Food Muffins

Chocolate Angel Food Muffins
makes 8 muffins

1/4 cup plus 1 Tablespoon cake flour
1/4 cup Dutch-processed cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder
3/4 cup granulated sugar, divided
6 large egg whites at room temperature
pinch of kosher salt
3/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
confectioners' sugar for dusting
mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350º F. Line a 12-cup standard muffin pan with 8 muffin liners (four spots will remain empty). Lightly spray the top of the pan with non-stick baking spray.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, espresso powder, and 1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons of the sugar. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg whites, salt, cream of tartar, and vanilla on high until soft peaks form. With the mixer still running, gradually add the remaining sugar and beat until the mixture reaches stiff, glossy peaks, about 2-3 minutes. Gently fold the dry ingredients into the beaten egg whites in three additions. Generously fill each muffin liner high with the batter (I like to use 2 scoops from my 2-ounce ice cream scoop for each muffin). Dust the tops of each muffin with confectioners' sugar and sprinkle with several mini-chocolate chips. Bake until the tops are puffed and dry, about 30 minutes. Transfer the muffin pan to a rack and allow the muffins to cool in the pan for 1 hour before removing (This will help the muffin retain its shape). Gently remove the muffins from the pan. Muffins can be stored in an airtight container for 2 days. Enjoy!

I got a confession to make. I am food addict, over-indulgent! I crave for anything especially sweets, chocolates, cakes, ice cream, strawberries, halo-halo, leche flan, banana Q, breads, pasta, Nasi Goreng....tell me what you got in your fridge ;-D. Thank heavens for I got my mum's genes, I can gain and lose pounds that easy and quick. I am here to share with you my food recipe collection (almost forgotten in a corner of my room) and search for new, exciting recipes, meet good people, and discover more about the world of baking. I am no professional baker or chef (just a wanna-be for now) but we'll get there in time. In sha Allah. Afterall, DREAMS just got to start somewhere, and it starts right here, right now! Meantime enjoy this food journey with me among other stuff....amigos to the kitchen! [Thank you for visiting my blog,you're always welcome to come by!
