Number of Servings: 9


    1 cup sifted whole wheat flour
    1/2 sugar
    1/2 cup splenda
    1 3/4 tbsp cocoa powder
    1/4 cup canola oil
    1/4 cup water
    1/4 cup fat free buttermilk
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp vanilla
    1/2 stick light margarine
    1 egg or 1/4 cup egg beaters
    1/2 box powdered sugar
    1/2 fat free half and half
    1/2 stick light margarine
    1 3/4 tbsp cocoa powder


Pre-heat the oven to 400. In large bowl mix flour, sugar and splenda and set asside. In a sauce pan heat oil, water, cocoa and margarine to a boil. Remove from heat and add to sugar mixture. Mix well by hand. add buttermilk, baking soda, egg and vanilla. Lightly coat a 8X8 inch square pan with cooking spray and pour in cake batter. Bake for 20 minutes. 5 minutes before cake is done. Bring remaining cocoa, margarine, half and half and cocoa to a boil. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar. Pour over cake hot out of the oven. I usually put several holes in my cake with a chopstick and pour the frosting over it so it will seep in. Best if eaten while still warm. This makes 9 servings.
