There is absolutely no oil or butter in this Skinny Chocolate Cake, but you wouldn’t know it! Greek Yogurt helps it stay rich and moist – you won’t miss the fat!
It is no secret that I love baking with yogurt (see here, here, and here). Yogurt can replace most or all of the fat in a lot of recipes while still giving you moist and tender baked goods. It allows me to make “skinny” recipes that taste (almost) as good as the real thing! The nice people at Chobani sent me a bunch of yogurt to try out in recipes (thank you!), so of course the first thing I made had chocolate in it! Skinny Chocolate Cake to be exact. The original recipe calls them fudgy brownies – I think the texture is more like a cake, but call them whatever you want – this chocolate creation is delicious! And it was so quick and easy to make. There is absolutely no oil or butter – ½ cup of Chobani and one egg does the job instead. The cake is so moist and fudgy . It is perfect on its own, sprinkled with powdered sugar, or served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!
