|Disclaimer: I did not make or decorate this lovely cake!|
This week I have been enjoying this beautiful chocolate cake a coworker made for me. And I am enjoying it even more now that I know her secret for a low fat cake that has a nice dense texture! She made a chocolate cake from a box mix and used applesauce instead of oil. And while it was hot out of the oven she placed cardboard over it and gently pressed down to compress it.
It has a great chocolate flavor and a bit of a fudge-like texture. This cake was so good I never would have guessed it was low fat! I thought it was a great trick I should share with you all. What a great looking cake!
