Everybody Needs Chocolate Cake [Fierce Foodie]
I’ve been trying to get in the habit of exercising. This may sound banal to you, but in reality this is like trying to get a feral cat used to full body shampoos. It’s a process. After I do my time on the treadmill I want a treat, but the last thing I want to do is eat something that will ruin all my hard work. But neither do I want to waste calories on some diet dessert that bears more resemblance to wet packing material than food. Hence my search for cake that is both yummy and not made with butter, something I wasn’t even sure existed. But luckily I have not been alone in this quest, as proven by the following recipe. It may help to get you through the dark days of winter without necessitating a shopping trip for larger pants.
