    This sounds fantastic! I replaced one cup of the sugar with Splenda to cut even more calories, but I wouldn't dare mess with the other ingredients. Fiber-loaded and really nutritious for a chocolate cake. Thank you!!! - 3/30/10

    This cake is awesome. I loved it as is, but actually made it with 1/4 c. of unsweetened applesauce in lieu of the oil and also added 1/3 c. protein powder. It is excellent. Has become a staple in my kitchen - 10/16/08

  • Great! I even accidentally baked it at too high a temperature and it still turned out great. (And I used applesauce instead of oil and cut mine into 15 pieces-yay! Lower calories!) Thank you! - 5/18/10

  • This is a DELICIOUS cake! Makes a perfect breakfast, or even a desert! A spoon or two of milk over it is all you need to bring out the sweetness! It's a lot for 1 person, so i gave some away. Next time I'll probably half the recipe. I would definitely recommend this one! - 11/4/08
