No Death By this Chocolate Cake




Chocolate, ridiculously easy, low in fat…. need I say more? Happy Valentine’s Day!

Ingredients

1 box chocolate cake mix (I used Betty Crocker Super Moist)
1 cup light coconut milk (which I get at Trader Joes)

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Put the cake mix into a large mixing bowl, add the light coconut milk and stir until completely blended into a uniform thick batter. Spray a 9 X 9 inch pan with cooking spray and spoon in the batter to coat the pan evenly. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Icing

Ingredients:

¾ cup powdered sugar
2 Tablespoons hot water
1 teaspoon almond extract

Directions:

Put all of the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until smoothly blended. Drizzle over cake once it is cooled. For creative presentation, try using small cookie cutters to make shapes for serving. You can also garnish with fresh berries or mint leaves.

Makes 16 servings, serving size 1 square (about 2 X 2 inches)

This is so delicious - I wouldn't have known it was low fat if you hadn't told me.
