yeah it truly is a great cake Kate! It is filling enough that you don't want to have a second piece! (I also cut the icing sugar ingredients down to half except the cocoa as this cuts down the cal content as well!!) Serve it up next time friends come around and they won't guess that it is a "healthy" choc cake!!
