Can a girl have a decadent chocolate cake, that doesn’t take any time to prepare, and is low in calories; the trifecta that seemed to elude us all. But alas, I have found the holy chocolate, low-calorie grail. Yes, and it doesn’t taste like “healthy” chocolate cake. Coming in under 200 calories a slice (16 slices per cake), you can get your chocolate fix and keep your waistline. I never thought this day would come.
1 (18.25 ounce) package devil’s food cake mix
1 (6.5 cup) package sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
1 cup fat free sour cream
1 cup natural (no sugar added) applesauce
2 whole eggs + 2 egg whites
1/2 cup warm water
2 cups milk chocolate chips (can’t skimp on this part)
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, mix together the cake, pudding mix, sour cream, applesauce, beaten eggs and water. Stir in the chocolate chips and pour batter into a well-greased 12 cup Bundt pan.
3. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes. Check after 45 minutes or until top is springy to the touch and a wooden toothpick inserted comes out clean. Cool cake thoroughly in pan at least before inverting onto a plate. If desired, dust the cake with powdered sugar and serve with strawberries.
4. I love to eat this cake warm! Cut a slice and microwave for 20 seconds. The chocolate chips will melt, and it will taste like molten lava chocolate cake. Enjoy!
I taste tested this on my family, and they all wanted the recipe. Give it a try — your taste buds and waistline will thank you.
