Number of Servings: 12


    1 cup whole-wheat flour
    1 cup whey protein powder (chocolate or vanilla)
    1/2 cup cocoa
    1-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup Splenda
    3/4 cup light mayonnaise
    1 cup water
    1 teaspoon vanilla


1. Sift the flour, cocoa, soda and salt together. (I suggest not using a regular sifter, as the cocoa does not come out well. Use a strainer instead.)
2. Cream the sugar, mayonnaise, water and vanilla together.
3. Add dry ingredients to the creamed mixture and stir.
4. Pour batter into greased and floured 9 x 13 inch pan.
5. Bake at 350F for about 25-30 minutes.

Serves 12.

If you make cupcakes, the batter will make 18-24 depending on size of tins.

Keep cake covered tightly to retain its moistness. We eat it plain, but you can sprinkle powdered sugar on it to make it fancier. Use a paper doily and sprinkle the powdered sugar through a sifter. Lift doily and you have a beautifully decorated cake!

    Sometimes when a recipe calls for mayo or sour cream I substitute greek yogurt for it and that seems to work for me. Everyone's taste buds are different!! - 5/21/13

    Stutlertoni..yes applesauce can be..might not be a rich chocolate flavor but yes it is a great sub for mayo...Greek yogurt is also it will give it almost the same kinda taste as mayo. I have used all these and they are interchangeable - 7/2/13

    I sprinkle Brown Sugar TWIN (from the box) on top of baked goods, gives the right touch of sweetness. Don't use the mixture of brown sugar/splenda brown sugar, that has a nasty off taste. Sugar Twin is better. - 5/21/13

    These were surprisingly great! Taste just like a regular cupcake, my daughter told me. I used chocolate protein powder and substituted fat-free vanilla greek yogurt for the mayo. I had to add a little extra water. I'd give them 5 stars, but for some reason it wouldn't let me do the stars! - 1/18/15
