A few good things

A recipe for “guilt-free chocolate cake”…..I made this earlier in the week….it’s chocolate-y without the guilt…..I liked it, but I still say I’d rather have a small bite of something REALLY decadent, than a big slice of something that is just “ok”……but swimsuit season is on it’s way!

  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package devil's food cake mix
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix and cocoa. Combine the egg whites, egg, water and yogurt; add to dry ingredients and beat well. Pour into a 10-cup fluted tube pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Bake at 350 degrees F for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
