Angel Food Refrigerator Torte
This is my youngest daughters favourite cake, and she always requests it for her birthday.
Cut angel food cake into 4 layers. (I usually make it as they tend to be higher but have used bought ones in a pinch )
Filling: Beat – ½ pound butter with 2 cups icing sugar & 1/8 tsp. salt till really creamy – about 3-4 min.
Add and beat in: 2 full squares semi-sweet chocolate melted
2 egg yolks *( beat egg whites till stiff and set aside )
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbsp. instant coffee in 3 Tbsp of boiling water (cool a little)
Beat well until creamy and light.
Gently fold in the 2 beaten egg whites you set aside.
Spread filling between cake layers (it doesn’t taste great until it’s cold)
Cover and chill overnight (or at least 4 hours before serving ).
To Serve: Top with whip cream and shave chocolate over top.
