A tender angel cake with a creamy almond filling.

1/3 cup sifted cake flour
3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup white sugar
6 egg whites
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup white sugar
5 teaspoons cornstarch
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup white sugar
1 cup milk
2 eggs
2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Sift flour, cocoa and ¼ cup of the white sugar together.
3. Beat egg whites with cream of tartar and salt until soft peaks form. Gradually add ½ cup of sugar, beating until stiff and shiny. Add vanilla.

5. Spoon batter into one 9x5-inch ungreased loaf pan.
