Chocolate Spice Cake Recipe!

Chocolate Spice Cake

Why it’s good for the heart: Now being heralded for favorable flavanols, chocoholics can rejoice – chocolate is high in Vitamin A and adds a little sugar and spice to the fourth course! 

Ingredients:

1 tsp. Baking Soda

1/3 Cup mini Chocolate Chips

½ Cup trans-fat free, lite stick Margarine

¼ Cup fat free Egg Substitute

1 tsp. ground Cinnamon

½ tsp. ground Cloves

1 Cup reduced fat Buttermilk

1 Cup Sugar

2 Cups unbleached all purpose Flour

Vegetable Cooking Spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375° F. Lightly spray a 9 x 13″ sheet pan.
  2. Combine the flour, margarine, and sugar in a bowl. Rub the mixture together with your hands, or cut in the margarine with a pastry blender, until the mixture is crumb-like. Add the baking soda, cinnamon, and cloves and mix gently.
  3. Add the chocolate chips, egg substitute, and buttermilk. Gently stir the cake batter with a fork to incorporate the liquid. Do not overmix.
  4. Pour the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Bake until the cake springs back gently to touch, about 20 minutes.
