Chocolate....cake....and low fat? What's not to love?

Top Review by DuChick

What a nice suprise to have such a rich, moist cake be low fat! I served this as our birthday cake to Jesus on Dec. 24, but made the mistake of covering it with a too-sweet frosting. Powdered sugar is all that's needed! I cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and used another 1/4 cup Splenda which made it plenty sweet. I also only had dark cocoa rather than regular, and used canola oil. We will enjoy this many times. Thanks Vittoria!
