    FoodExplorer's Note:

    I used the Hershey's cocoa recipe for a starter and made adjustments for this much healthier version. It is made with no oil, only one egg and has loads of taste. For my birthday earlier in the year, I tried to make a healthy chocolate cake, and it was so bad I had to throw it away. I don't think anyone would be throwing this one away :) It is very light and fluffy, full of chocolate flavor and for many, many fewer calories. Oh, and did I mention it's dairy-free as well?! Update: I tried reducing the sugar amount even more to 1/4 cup, but it resulted in a more spongy texture, rather than the fluffy you get using 1/2 cup sugar.....just wanted to post, for all those out there like me trying to see how much sugar could be eliminated ;)
