Sorry, we really didn't like this. It had a very lowfat consistency and didn't taste very good. Wish I had liked it more.

The name says it all...a low-fat gooey hot fudge cake. This recipe is excellent for someone who wants a choc. cake fix without the expense of major calories. To our family it looked like a low fat cake and it tasted like one. After tasting and talking it over w/ my hubby I improved it by adding fresh cut strawberries, a dollup of redi-whip and a dusting of powdered sugar.

This was great. I substituted some of the sugar for Splenda just to cut down on the sugar. I couldn't believe how good it was.
