Can something this decadent be delish and still be not bad for you? The answer is YES!! I found some old Cooking Light magazines at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago for 25 cents, so I had to buy everyone they had. This recipe was in one of them. With trying to watch my blood sugar and eat healthier and getting my family eating healthier I knew that this one was one that I would have to try. Everyone in my little clan has a sweet tooth, so trying to find the balance between having the sweets and still being somewhat healthy has been some sort of a challenge. This cake was the perfect thing for the weekend. The texture is a little "spongy" as Blake my 12 year old described it, and the batter is a little thicker than a normal cake batter would be.
Triple Chocolate Cake
By: Cooking Light
1 (18.25 oz) package devil's food cake mix--I used a dark chocolate mix
1 cup fat free sour cream
1/3 cup fat free milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 tsp almond extract
3 large egg whites
1 large egg
1 (3.9 oz) package sugar free/low calorie chocolate pudding mix
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
4 tsp fat free milk
1/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine first 8 ingredients in a large bowl; beat at low speed for 30 seconds. Beat at medium speed 2 minutes. Pour the batter into a 12 cup Bundt pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan for 10 minutes; remove from pan and cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar and 4 teaspoons of milk in a small bowl, and drizzle over cake. Let stand 10 minutes. Place chips in a small heavy duty zip top plastic bag; seal. Submerge bag in very hot water until chips melt, or microwave at medium high for 1 minutes. Snip a tiny hole in 1 corner of bag, and drizzle chocolate over cake.
