Angel food cakes are often the go-to desserts for people looking for extremely low-fat desserts. However, while they lack a lot of fat, they also tend to lack a lot of flavor -- until now. Unsweetened cocoa and malted milk powder pack such a tremendous amount of flavor you'll never miss any of the fat.
