1        Pillsbury Moist Supreme Sugar Free Devil's Food cake mix
1        small package Instant Sugar Free chocolate pudding mix
1        cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
4        eggs
1/2     cup unsweetened applesauce
1/2     cup warm water
1        teaspoon vanilla
1        cup dark chocolate chips (60%  cacao bittersweet chips)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a Bundt cake pan with cooking spray.

Combine all ingredients but the chips in a large mixing bowl.  Beat on low to moistened all the ingredients.  Scrape the sides of the bowl.

Increase speed to medium and beat for 3 minutes. 

Scrape the sides of the bowl again and add the chips on low til mixed in.

Pour into prepared Bundt pan and bake for 45 minutes.

Cool cake for 10 minutes in pan before turning out to a cake plate.

I chose to enjoy the cake as you see it.  You can sift some confectioners' sugar over the top before serving if you like.

I slimmed down Jen's recipe for Skinny chocolate Bundt cake from Yummy Healthy Easy.  I always substitute a sugar-free cake mix when I can.  I also reduced the fat by using non-fat Greek yogurt. Using a natural unsweetened applesauce will also reduce the calories.  My version could be labeled sugar free if I left out the chocolate chips.  But who wants to do that.  The 60% cacao bittersweet chips only have 5 grams of sugar in 20 chips.  So that does help.  Janice's husband told me this was the best thing I had brought him to eat.  I do think it is the best chocolate "thing" I have made.

I am currently working on two quilting/sewing projects.  Thought I would give you a "teaser" re them.  

This is a table runner I am making.  I actually have the top finished. Just need to choose the print I will be using for the backing.

After making the Quilt of Valour for Wounded Warrior, the Northland New Neighbors quilting group has decided to make baby quilts for Project Linus.  When we found out we could make "rag quilts", I decided to make a couple of them and teach Janice and Fran how to make them.  They really are easy.  It was so much fun picking out the material for them.  This is the first one I am working on. You can see how simple it is to make a rag quilt HERE.


  1. That chocolate cake looks delicious! Looking forward to your tutorials.

    1. Did you see the tutorials for making the rag quilts, Mary? I have made two so far and they are both so cute. Working on a baby quilt for my hairdresser right now, but I used cottons and no flannel. Will be sharing it when I get it finished.
