Low Fat, Low Cholesterol Chocolate Cake/Cupcakes

"These are absolutely heavenly and oh so lite in taste. A wonderful little decadence that you don't mind cheating a little while dieting. I make them into cupcakes but the recipe actually is for a cake. The serving size is a guess. If you make them into cupcakes, make sure you fill them all the way to the top as they don't puff up that much. The frosting makes a huge amount and so adjust accordingly depending on if you're making cupcakes or a cake."

    I am not a big cinnamon fan, so omitted it, and added instant coffee to the warm water, and this was super!

    Loved this! My husband is watching his cholesterol, so I made this as his birthday cake. I made it exactly as written with no changes or substitutions. I made 2 8 inch layers and it took about 25 minutes to cook. When it was cooling, it looked really dry so I wasn't expecting it to be too good. It is delicious! The cake is super moist, and has a ton of flavor. I did not tast the cinnamon in it. My only complaint is that my frosting was very soft, even after chilling. I used the white chocolate pudding mix and garnished with fresh raspberries. I will make this again!

    I am very amazed with this cake. As being low-fat as well as low cholesterol it got a rich, brownie-like taste with texture.

    I made these for a co-worker's birthday since she is currently trying to lose 20 pounds. I didn't want her to feel guilty and I wanted her to have a treat. These were spot-on! Everyone raved and she loved them. Would make again and again and again and again... :-)
