      This is a nice and light cake. I used it to make a low cal, low carb and low fat Tirimisu. Only you need to line just the bottom of the pan with waxed paper. I had some hanging over the side and the oven smoked up like crazy. I should have known better. All-in-all, I found this recipe easy and lightly tasting as I wanted.

      I made this cake yesterday and it's a keeper. It was so moist, not at all like the usual sponge cakes. I used the dutch cocoa recommended by another reviewer and it's definitely worth using. It was so dark and chocolatey. I also used lite cool whip on the top and the sides and then I shaved (3) Russell Stover-no sugar added French mint on the top. Wow, out of this world and still the sugar levels were low. Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. My family really enjoyed this.
