Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake

Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake

Oh, the places you’ll go, the things you’ll do, the foods you’ll try, like my Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake! Happy Easter, all you cottontails! I hope you are celebrating the meaning of the season with lots of chocolate eggs, yellow and pink Peeps, and my personal favorite, peanut butter and butterscotch birds nests. Those I’ll have to post another time. To kick off Good Friday festivities (and my serious love for Jesus), I decided to make a lightened up double-chocolate bundt cake. Every time I make bundt cake, I always think of that moment in My Big Fat Greek Wedding“Bonk? Bonnnnnt. Oh, it’s a cake! I know!” (whispers to friend), “There’s a hole in this cake.” Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Well, there is definitely a hole in my Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake, and I’m totally proud of it. Though looking at it, it almost makes me sad because mentally I’m like, “There’s less cake here than there should be,” which is not mathematically accurate, but you get it. So to get to the point (of the above photo), I started off with the biggest challenge every baker is tasked with. The terrifying pan flip. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Thank the good Lord it survived…Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.

But first, I had to smell it. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.And stir it. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.And spill it a little while pouring… Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.And then I really went for it. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.And then, all was right with the world. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.So, I decided to try my cake for the first time. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Things got a little messy. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.But, no complaining. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Though I did miss holding that mug of chocolate sauce. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.But I didn’t miss it that much. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.

This is totally my personality around food, by the way. My cakes are like my kids. Don’t go too far, honey! Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog. Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.Anyway, I can’t say enough good things about this cake. And I’m not bragging. I’m just saying, food is good. And when you put certain foods together, sometimes something magical happens. That’s what happened here. Food + food + food = YAS. It’s moist, rich, chocolatey, gooey, and – so surprisingly – low in calories. I think that’s what Vegas calls a win-win-win-win-win.Skinny Chocolate Bundt Cake by Skinny Girl Standard, a low calorie food blog.By the way, I totally just redid the “office” space of my bedroom, note the glass table, and I am obsessed. Here are some of the new things I purchased that I am obsessed with:

Throw I Gold Spray I Floral Piece I Marble Tray I Clear Table I Glass Top for Marble Platter I Gold Office Chair I Bundt Cake Baker I Tea Cup and Saucer I Marble Platter

Favorites? How do you choose? Well, those florals are (believe it or not) more stunning in person. Also, I love all things marble, so I am 100% sold on that marble tray. (Not to mention the marble platter which was a part of my wedding registry and yes, it was the best decision ever). And finally, look at that chair. Stare at that chair. It’s perfection.
