    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This cake is almost fat-free, if you are in need of a chocolate fix and watching your fat intake then this might be what you are looking for ;-) don't bother licking the spoon before baking as the yogurt makes it taste kind of tingly and weird, lol! Watch closely, do not overbake this cake you will need to experiment with length of cooking time to suit your oven and baking pan. Enjoy one or two pieces without any guilt --- for greasing see my Pan Release, Professional Pan Coating (Better Than Pam Spray!) --- *NOTE* for Weight Watchers program it is calculated at 18 pieces/2 points each

      After reading all the reviews, I took the advice of chef #67656 and used both Splenda (3/4 cup) and Splenda brown (1/4cup), stirring both into the dry flour and cocoa mixture. My addition was a tablespoon of instant coffee crystals to negate any chemical aftertaste. It did the trick! I used 3 egg whites and 1 egg yolk. As did Chef #79888, I whipped the egg whites into a soft meringue then folded them into the batter. Mine was perfectly done after a mere 20 minutes convection bake time. I had no trouble with the cake sticking to the pan even though I just used cooking spray on the bottom. While it was hot, I smeared it with sugar free orange marmalade as a pretend frosting. I was *very* impressed with the results, both in texture and taste! If you did not know, you would never guess that it was essentially fat free. Thanks for posting this recipe! I am sure to use it often!

      I made this yummy cake tonight, it totally satisfied my chocolate craving. I made it a bit different- I whipped the egg whites to soft peaks in my kitchenaid then followed the recipe, adding a tsp of gelatin. I spread the batter in a parchment lined jelly-roll pan and sprinkled the batter with 2 Tbs of chocolate chips. I baked at 330 degrees for 30 mins. After it came out of the oven and cooled, I sliced it length-wise and filled it with a tub of fat free cool whip. YUM! Will definitely make again. ETA: I made these again, still yummy- but if you do cupcakes be sure to spray your papercups with cooking spray or the cakes will stick to the wrapper like glue. Bake for 20 mins for cupcakes. ETA #2- I keep coming back to this recipe- if I could give it 10 stars I would. Its to die when topped with a smear of peanut butter.
