This cake is absolutely one of the best lower calorie chocolate cakes I have ever made. It is very moist with a deep dark chocolate flavor. It is a delicious and no one will ever guess it is a lightened up version! It's another cake that starts with a box mix, but ends up tasting homemade! This would be a great addition to your upcoming holiday weekend menu.
I made this cake in a 9" x 13" glass baking dish, but you could also make this recipe into cupcakes or a bundt pan. ( Nutritional info will vary with amount of yield for cupcakes and how many slices you cut the bundt cake into)
My entire family loved this cake and you will too!

I have to be honest with everyone, I haven't been going to my WW meetings for several months now. The scale has slowly begun to creep up a bit, and this morning I took the plunge and started back up. Its a fresh start for me. I need to get back to being a great track master!!! Luckily, I made this cake yesterday to help keep me on track. Its a BIG punch of chocolate flavor for relatively little points!
