    justcallmetoni's Note:

    Recently made this for a family dinner and it was enjoyed by all (until they found out it was healthy that is). It is moist and light yet chcocolatey enough to satisfy your cravings. The secret to this cake is the moist and fluffy "frosting." Not only does it make a nice contrast to the buttermilk cake it keeps the dish from having that dry quality characteristic of non-fat baking. For that reason, it is best to let your finished cake fully chill, overnight if possible. The tablespoon of oil is optional and makes this a low fat not fat free option. The nutritionals given for this cake without the oil are 156 calories, 1.3g fat, 1.4g fiber, and 0g cholesterol.

      Both the cake and the frosting seemed odd. Not bad, just different. DD didn't like the frosting at all. Everyone else ate it, but just don't think this cake is for us.

      This wasn't a good cake, sorry. I had hoped for the best but I think that we all missed the fat.

      my sister made this for my birtthday. she substituted wholemilk vanilla yogurt for the nonfat in making the frosting. i found the frosting yummy but the cake a tad dry,
      i myself mightve added some pudding or homemade non high fructose corn syrup
      jam.replaced the eggs with applesauce, and milk with hempmilk, and the oil with jam. tho yu might try putting pudding on side or in middle.
