You won't miss the fat when you taste this moist, fudgy dessert. I substituted yogurt for the oil called for in a reduced-fat box mix to create this delicious cake. —Brenda Ruse, Truro, Nova Scotia


  • 1 package devil's food cake mix (regular size)
  • 1-1/3 cups water
  • 1 cup reduced-fat plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup baking cocoa
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 egg
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons confectioners' sugar


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, yogurt, cocoa, egg whites and egg; beat on low for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes.
  2. Pour into a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
