   This is a lower fat version of the original Chocolate Meringue Cake with
   Raspberry Sauce. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. Cover two cookie sheets with
   foil.  Draw two 9-inch circles on foil. Whisk the egg whites and 1 teaspoon
   lemon juice until they hold soft peaks. Add 3/4 cup of sugar, a spoonful at
   a time, and beat constantly until the sugar is incorporated and the
   meringue is stiff and shiny. Divide the meringue between the two circles,
   spreading to edges. Bake for 4 hours then turn off oven. Leave in oven
   until meringues are cold. You can make these ahead of time and store in
   cardboard box. Combine the margarine and cocoa in a saucepan and cook over
   low heat for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Do not let burn. Pour hot milk
   into cocoa mixture, stirring constantly with a wire whisk. Add 1/2 cup of
   the sugar and the coffee granules and simmer, stirring constantly, until
   thick. Remove from heat and add vanilla and mix well. Allow sauce to cool
   then refrigerate for at least 2 hours. When ready to use, beat mixture
   until fluffy and lighter in color. Spread on one meringue and sandwich the
   two meringues together. Sauce: Puree raspberries in a food processor or
   blender. Strain into a bowl and add remaining 1/4 cup sugar and teaspoon of
   lemon juice. To serve: Cut meringue cakes into wedges and spoon a scant 2
   tablespoons of raspberry sauce over each wedge. Garnish as desired.
