Great mid-day snack for a boost of energy to last you to dinner (not to mention pretty good for you, too). I made this with two eggs, but I think it could use another. Let me know what you think. I may just add an egg white next time.

This was decent, but not all that exciting. The texture was really good - nice and moist. I just really didn't taste any chocolate or much sweetness. I would probably make it again because it is so healthy and still edible. I might add some fake sugar or spices though to make it more flavorful w/o adding calories.

We love this recipe! I baked mine in mini bundt pans, and they came out like doughnuts, which was really fun:) I used yogurt instead of sour cream, but otherwise made the recipe as written, and it had a wonderful texture, just as good as regular, unhealthy cake recipes. Thanks for this one, it's a keeper!
