"Lite" Chocolate Cake

When I saw this recipe on pinterest I was intrigued.  "Healthy" version of chocolate cake?  Yes, please!

This is one of those 3 ingredient wonders (if you count water as an ingredient).

Simply combine 1 box of chocolate (or any flavor) cake mix with 1 cup of plain greek yogurt (original recipe says fat free, but I had "lowfat" on hand that was due to expire) and 1 cup of water.


Mixture looks like chocolate mousse.  


Spray cake pan(s) and bake according to directions on box.  

I decided cupcakes were a better option for us because they would store better (and dictate portion control).


The outcome?  Pretty much tastes like a chocolate angel food cake.  
And my ultimate taste testers, the kids, loved them! 
And so easy to make! 

(I left these cupcakes "bald" since I didn't have any icing on hand, or want to add more calories to them.)

Might have to try my hand at the other recipes listed here.
