A delicious, dense, chewy chocolate cake made with whole wheat flour and yogurt. Use any flavor of yogurt you want. I used strawberry and it was delicious, you could also use raspberry or vanilla or whatever else goes well with chocolate. Baking time is approximate. As one of the reviewers pointed out, it is better after it has cooled for a few hours, or even overnight. :)
- 1 1⁄2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup yogurt, any flavor
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons vinegar
- Grease an 8x8 pan and preheat oven to 375.
- Blend all ingredients together in a medium bowl.
- Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Serve as is, frosted, or dusted with powdered sugar.
I thought this was great! Light and moist. I used plain yogurt so it tastes more like a sour cream cake. To the person that hated it...you baked it too long maybe. my oven runs very hot and I adjust my temp downward quite a bit. I have to watch things carefully but this came out fine. added a vanilla buttercream frosting. my daughter loves it!!!
This cake is phenomenal! Very moist, and not totally unhealthy. I even cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and butter to 1/8 cup and it was very good. I did like it better after it sat for a day, it got even more moist. I stored in the refrigerator, and topped with a mixture of yogurt and peanut butter for a peanut butter fix. Thanks a bunch!
This cake was TERRIBLE!!! I cooked it for about 50 minutes at 375 (& my oven's hot!) and when I took it out, the edges were pulling away from the sides and the top was about to burn, but when I let it cool (thinking that would cook the middle a bit) and cut a piece, the inside was still wet! I thought it might at least taste good, and be like a sort of pudding cake, but it tasted awful!!! Never again!
