This is light, fluffy, kind of like a chocolate sponge cake. I was short on cocoa, so I used the 1/2 C I had and added hot cocoa mix for the rest, so I had more sugar than was needed. This was very easy to make; even my 4 you helped! I only sprayed the bundt pan with canola oil spray and it came out with minimal sticking. I dusted the individual slices with powdered sugar, but I bet it would be even better with a choc. icing. I used whole wheat pastry flour. Thanks Mirj!
