{low fat} Chocolate Marble Loaf Cake

January 18, 2016

With every one's new year's resolutions still fresh in their mind, it seemed like a good time to shared this fab cake.

It's chocolate, which is pretty fab in itself, but, it's also low fat.  I kid you not.  You can have more than one piece of this and not feel totally insane guilty about. 


This cake is kinda, sorta, like a pound cake, but, a little different texture.  It also has lots less fat. I came across a marble swirled pound cake recipe online and it called for a whopping 3 sticks a butter. 
Which, seemed like an awful lot to me.  Doesn't it? I mean, I like butter, but, wooh! 

With that, I moved on.

You will so very much love this cake all by itself or if you can put a oh-so-little bit of soft, low cal butter spread on a slice and call it a day. Both ways are delicious  and guilt free.
