Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I substituted stevia for half the sugar, whole wheat pastry flour for the white flour, used 2 eggs instead of 3 egg whites, upped the cocoa powder to 1 1/4 cups, and used coconut milk instead of cow's milk. The cake was moist and delicious! Baked for 25 minutes at 325 in a convection oven. Submitted by:

This was a huge hit at my house. Nobody knew it was reduced fat and everyone loved it. I used almond milk (we're all lactose intolerant) and a tablespoon of espresso powder added to the dry ingredients. Made a half recipe and put it in an 8x8 pan. Worked perfectly! Submitted by:

5 Star Cake for sure! Thanks for sharing!!
Light, fluffy, moist, and best of all, CHOCOLATEY! I used 2 whole eggs instead of 3 egg whites, replaced a 1/4 cup of white flour for whole wheat flour, and added 2 tsp of refined coconut oil. Not as low fat, but definitely GOOOOOOOOD!

This was fabulous. No one had any idea that it was low in fat. I also reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups and it was plenty sweet. I did not change the amount of cocoa as some of the recipes did above. Submitted by:

Impressive! Super easy to make! I used 1c. Splenda (in place of sugar) & increased to 1c. Applesauce. Replaced flour with whole wheat flour. Only 69 calories and 13 carbs per serving! My husband really liked it, said it was more like a brownie consistancy. Will save this recipe. Submitted by:

Quite tasty. I also used the 1 c (instead of 3/4 c) cocoa; could actually have used some more, for my tastes. Still not quite as "thick tasting" as normal cake, but pretty good considering it's low fat. Submitted by:

I used oat bran instead of flour, 1/2 cup Splenda, 1 cup unsweetend applesauce and whole eggs. This recipe is like ones from the early 1990's, when only fat was considered the culprit making people fatter. Submitted by:

This cake is very tasty. The alterations I made were: 1.5 cups of sugar, Better'n'Eggs instead of the egg whites, and an additional 1/2 cup (approx.) of cocoa powder. oh, and I used unbleached, unenriched flour.

very tasty!

I love this ! I made it vegan with egg substitute and nonfat soymilk. I used Splenda instead of sugar. I used 1 1/4 cocoa and 1/8 powdered sugar sifted on top. I got it down to 103.5 calories with 12 servings ;) Submitted by:

It was okay for low fat. Does not substitute for a real cake, but works for the chocolate fix. Submitted by:

I hate throwing out egg yolks. They have a bad rap - but they can help save your eyesight. I'd rather use two whole eggs...and less sugar...replace some of it with stevia.
But I do know th applesauce would make it moist.

this sounds much like the VERY GOOD recipie on the back of the Hershey's unsweetened cocoa... I've dropped the sugar down by 25% and still fantastic. Whole wheat flour does change the consistency i think. Submitted by:

I will make this cake experimenting with sugar substitute, sugars are way too much - 2 cups of sugar doesn't work for me, but looks great (enriched flour isn't good either, and will work on that). Submitted by:

We served this at a family gathering. No one guessed it was low fat. I added 1/3 cup extra cocoa, but I actually thought it was a little too rich. I will experiment with the cocoa to see what we like best. But I will definitely be making this again. It was delicious! Submitted by:

I made this cake last night and instead of using regular cocoa, I used Hershey's Dark Chocolate cocoa (25 calories per serving) and it was delicious!!! It looks more like a brownie than a cake, but it's really good. I would definitely make it again! Submitted by:
