Chocolate Angel Food Cake
I always love chocolate, and hot summer weather makes me want a light, fresh dessert...and local fresh fruits are always tempting. This is a light(er) dessert...unfortunately, I found it pretty 'light' on flavor too. I want stronger chocolate flavor and not quite as sweet. Still, a light option and tastey with fresh berries and a little whipped cream. I had some leftover cream cheese icing (from cinnamon rolls last week) that I drizzled over it this time around.
I’m not a chef; my formal culinary training is pretty limited. I just like food. I’m a high school teacher, and about 5 years ago, my teaching assignment shifted from full time English to including some culinary classes (which I enjoy!). I attend culinary educators’ workshop(s) at the local technical college’s culinary program and/or at other culinary institutions (like Johnson & Wales Colorado campus) for a week most summers to improve my skills. So the lack of culinary training is…well, a work in progress! As a teacher, my time and my budget are both limited. I started this blog simply to have a place to store recipes that I could search by name, ingredients, etc. You’ll also see a few recipes posted for my students’ access…stuff we’ve made in classes. You’re welcome to browse...
