i like the website http://www.allrecipes.com - if you click healthy living on the left and then low-fat (also on the left) then you can search all low fat recipes - ie type in 'chocolate' or 'cake' you can also search for low carb, low sodium etc etc

also, most of them are reviewed by others so u can see how they turned out!

this cake looks yummy though!

CHOCOLATE PUDDING CAKE

INGREDIENTS
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup white sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups hot water


DIRECTIONS
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
In an 8x8 inch square pan, stir together the flour, white sugar, 1/4 cup of cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add milk and oil, mix well. Sprinkle brown sugar, remaining cocoa and chocolate chips over the mixture. Add the vanilla to the hot water, then pour the water over the top.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until the surface appears dry. Serve warm with a spoon or at room temperature.

I love baked apples stuffed with walnuts. Just core an apple, stuff it with walnuts (and raisins if you like) and bake it in an oven until done. You can serve it with low-fat ice-cream or yoghurt if you like.

A low fat cheese cake?

You can turn any recipe you like into low fat. Just substitute sugar for the CSR Smart Sugar, use lite margarine instead of butter, use wholemeal flour instead of white flour, skim milk instead of full cream...

Helen, STOP censored and get in the Kitchen!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Chocolate Amaretto Cheesecake
6 squares (2 1/2 inches each) chocolate graham crackers made into crumbs

2 1/3 cups part-skim ricotta cheese

4 oz. nonfat cream cheese

1/2 cup sugar

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

1 egg

3 tbsp. all-purpose flour

2 tbsp. Amaretto liqueur

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 tbsp. semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300° F. Spray an 8-inch springform pan with nonstick cooking spray. Sprinkle the cracker crumbs evenly over the bottom of the pan.

(If you don't have an 8-inch springform pan, make cheesecake in an 8-inch aluminum foil baking pan. Using a scissors, cut sides away before serving.)

In a blender or food processor, puree the ricotta and cream cheeses, sugar, cocoa, egg, flour, liqueur and vanilla; stir in the chocolate chips.

Pour the mixture over the crumbs. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1d hours. Cool completely on a rack. Refrigerate, covered, until chilled, at least 3 hours.

What about a simple chocolate mousse with fresh fruit as a garnish?

You can just get the packet where you add milk and whisk!

They taste delicious... And are low in calories... AND SO SIMPLE!!!

You could always decorate with some tasty strawberries, blueberries and passionfruit.
