Recipe Of The Day: Chocolate Meringue Cake

Stephanie Foley/Food&Wine

What we love about meringue cakes is that they're made up of air. Sure, you also use some egg whites and a decent amount of sugar, but essentially it's all air. Which means that if you're looking for a light dessert recipe that still tastes good, a meringue cake just might be it.

And for fans of the hazelnut-chocolate spread Nutella this meringue cake recipe keeps that great flavor combination but leaves out that oh-god-my-arteries-are-clogging feeling.
