Chocolate Cake

Recommended Posts

Warning: 1 piece will fill you up for a long long time! :)

 

 

This "Chocolate Cake" recipe came from playing with: Lynn's Chocolate Baked Oatmeal, my Baked Oatmeal, Sheryls' Chocolate Snackin' Cake, and the Brownie recipes...Here goes!

 

"CHOCOLATE CAKE"

Servings: 8-16 (I can't eat 1/8th anymore...!)

 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. (I use a small toaster/convection oven.)

 

Line an 8X8" pan with Reynold's Non-Stick aluminum foil or spray with non-stick spray.

 

In one bowl, stir:

 

2 Cups oat bran

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder (Rumford, aluminum-free, is good)

1 tsp. baking soda

Package of chocolate pudding mix, small (I used regular, but use FF/SF for all-CORE)

1/4 Cup of cocoa, unsweetened

3 Splenda packets (you may want yours sweeter)

Pinch of salt

 

In another bowl, mix:

 

3 eggs, beaten

1 tsp. vanilla

1 Cup FF milk

1/2 C. applesauce, unsweetened (I use a 4 oz. pre-portioned container)

1 TBS. instant espresso coffee crystals

 

Add liquid bowl into dry bowl, mix quickly and pour into pan; put pan into oven for 25 minutes (or until sides of cake have pulled away from pan; cracks may appear on top). COOL.

 

Note: I've tried this "warm" and it was excellent. :) Great the next day, cold.

 

Let me know what you think! :)


May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

How does this compare to the Shery'ls recipe? That's what I normally make, except I add 1/3 c nonfat dry milk and a tsp baking powder to her recipe.

'Cept Sheryl's has the 3 bananas...! :bcb_bigsm

 

Lots of people don't like the banana-taste. (Personally, I love it.)

 

But this is very much like CHOCOLATE CAKE. :bcb_smile

 

Try it and see what you think. It's high...Like I said, it's a compilation. :salut


May you be happy. May you be well. May you be free from suffering.

I like the bananas but I don't always have them readily available when I get the urge for chocolate cake. This is a lot better from a convenience standpoint, I always have applesauce!

Carol, thanks for the recipe. I plan on making this for my Sunday Football Party. I am really bored with the banana taste and look forward to this.

 

We are excited about the Bears being in the playoffs but I think the Saints will eat their lunch!!

 

Someone is bringing brownies so I will eat a piece of the chocolate cake and not feel deprived:salut Judy

This is so good. I just finished a piece (I cut mine in 16pcs.) and put a spoonful of SF/FF cheesecake pudding on top and it was wonderful. I'm going to freeze the slices and then wrap individually. Thank you for the recipe!

I tried this yesterday, and it was really good! And, I discovered at the last minute that I had no oat bran, so I subbed cream of wheat, and it came out fine! :bcb_bigsm

 

My kids love it, too ~ bonus! :bcb_up

Thank you for this recipe. I made it last night..and i concur it is verrrry filling. not something i would say about regular chocolate cake=) I iced it with ff pudding, it moistened it and provided a textural contrast--as well as more visual appeal for my family.

 

Im going to try the cream of wheat version next time i make it.

 

I think the main challenge with these core baked goods for me is having enough room for healthy foods as well. I just have to plan them into my day, not grab a piece as a snack before dinner, then not be hungry for my healthy 8s...I was tempted to have a slice for breakfast, but remembered the point i just made and went ahead with my scrambled eggs w/ bulgar,corn and tomatoes=)

 

Thank you soo much for this and all of your recipes=)

Has anyone tried topping this with sugar free cherry pie filling for like a black forest cake. I haven't tried this recipe yet but am going to try it this weekend. Thanks. It sounds wonderful.

Made this last night and it was very good (topped it with FF/Sf pudding). DH and I thought it needed a little more sweetener. I used Stevia extract, and I don't think I put enough drops in! I will try the packets the next time! Does anyone know if they are the same sweetness as a Splenda packet?

Jenny, the cupcake idea is right on. I took them on my trip this week. They travel great. They are not crumbly, just wonderful. How can anyone feel deprived when they eat these things. I enjoyed them for breakfast with a cup of hot green tea. Awesome!

 

Carol, thank you!
