Very nice! Made this for my husbands birthday and we all thought it was great. I did use reg. sugar instead of splenda, and egg whites with just 2 yolks for the eggbeaters. I also used the special dark cocoa instead of the reg. This is so much lower in fat than the original version but it's still a very moist cake. This will be the one we use from now on. Thanks Taterbug!
