German Sweet Chocolate Cake
“This delicious German Sweet Chocolate Cake is from my aunt,” Patricia Peebles of Springfield, Missouri writes. “It’s delicious, but my sister and I have adopted healthier lifestyles. Can you trim it down?”
We sure can! This mouth-watering dessert has three chocolaty cake layers and a coconut-pecan frosting, making it a triple threat to your waistline. But thanks to our experts, you can enjoy a slice worry-free! The makeover team:
- Replaced a portion of the butter with prune baby food.
- Reduced the sugar and opted for a sugar blend to cut calories.
- Used two egg yolks instead of four.
- Decreased the German sweet chocolate and added cocoa to maintain the chocolate flavor with less calories and fat.
