Dark Chocolate Layer Cake
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 30 min.
SOUNDS LIKE IT WOULD BE A REALLY GREAT RECIPE FOR CHOCOLATE CAKE, HOWEVER THIS IS BY NO MEANS "HEALTHY" WITH 17 g OF SATURATED FAT.
Just like it came from a bakery! This was so chocolately and the texture was perfect. The batter will be thin, but don't let that fool you. It is a perfect chocolate cake. I wanted a white icing so followed the recipe and used white 'chocolate' instead of the semisweet. Be sure to whip the icing, after it has cooled, to thicken the consistency. I made two 9" layers, and added whipped cream (stabilized with Oetker Whip-it), between the layers. It was absolutely delicious. Looking for an excuse to make another one.
In the cake, 3 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted. Frosting, 16 ounces semisweet chocolate, chopped. Thats the amount of chocolate listed. (This was to the person that didn't know how much chocolate was in the recipe). Hope that helps!
The reason this was in Light & Tasty was because they did a makeover version on the same page in the magazine. This one must have accidentally gotten switched with the healthier version on the website.
Best chocolate cake ever. I put vanilla icing on it instead. Family loved it.
I haven't seen a lot of recipes in the Light and Healthy magazine that would really fall into that catagory.
Why is this under "healthy" category? 112 g of carbohydrate will make even the healthiest person's blood sugar soar. Also 816 calories and 41 g of fat is not a healthy dessert.
861 calories-- I don't think this is light!!! Somebody made a big boo boo!!
This is my family's favorite chocolate cake!!!
the recipe looks good, but how much chocolate is needed? I don't see it listed anywhere on the ingredients.
