Semisweet chocolate chips add rich flavor to this moist chocolaty cake that's lower in fat. Slices of it are excellent for dessert or a snack. —Kay McMicken of Charlotte, North Carolina

MY REVIEW

"This cake has become my families favorite. Moist and chocolatey, easy and quick to prepare. I use five whole eggs instead. After cooling, I sprinkle it lightly with powdered sugar to make it eye appealing as well as taste appealing."

MY REVIEW

"Sorry to be a spoilsport but this cake was very disappointing. I was looking for an enhanced boxcake recipe that was fit for company, I was extreemly disappointed and embarassed. It was dry and slightly chocolately....made as written. If I realized it was a healthy diet cake I would've gone with butter or oil instead of applesauce and added lots more chocolate. If you are watching your fat and sugar and don't care for a dry cake this is it!!!"

"Simply the best chocolate cake we've ever had, including expensive cakes from the best bakery in town! I didn't use sugar-free anything, and I did use 4 eggs (instead of 2 plus the egg substitute). I drizzled a chocolate glaze on top and served it with black raspberry/chocolate chunk ice cream. Nirvana!!!"
