CHOCOLATE sheet cake

Okay, so as promised, some of my great tasting (even if I am slightly biased) recipes.

This one is very easy and one of my favourites.  It is low calorie and low fat and tastes awesome.  I made it for Skyler's birthday cake and I have since made it with a few more adaptations for people I work with (and of course myself).

What you need...

1 3/4 cups all purpose (plain) flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 large egg whites
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp butter (I use I can't believe it is not butter light version)
1 cup black coffee (hot)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup stevia (extract in the raw) (natural sugar substitute)
3/4 cup cocoa powder (I use hershey's dark chocolate cocoa)
1 1/2 cups fat free skim milk

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat a 9- X 13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, stevia, baking powder and salt; mix well with a fork to combine.
In another large mixing bowl, combine milk, egg whites, melted butter and vanilla. Using an electric mixer, mix on low speed until blended; gradually beat in boiling coffee.
Gradually add flour mixture to milk mixture and mix on low speed until blended. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a wooden toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool cake in pan, on a wire rack.  You can also pour the batter into a cupcake pan and add chocolate chips for a little more calories and tastiness but portion control!!!!  For a cupcake pan check after about 18 - 20 mins.  If you so desire you can also sprinkle powdered sugar on top for decoration and an added little bite of tasty!

Cheap and easy to make.
