Reduced Fat and Cholesterol Red Velvet Cake
August 19, 2011

This "cake" does not taste bad, but neither does it taste like cake either. It was an experiment to me, and every single person I served it too agreed that it much more closely resembled a sweet, dense red velvet muffin. The cake was extremely heavy and short. The icing was delicious but did not taste like normal icing and was difficult to spread because it was so thin. It was much more similar to overly sweet yogurt. I also found that the artificial sweetener was funny tasting and needed to add some sugar to keep the cake from tasting awful. The original recipe called for 1 1/2 cup sugar so I added about 3/4 cup sugar to this recipe. I would NOT recommend this recipe if you are trying to make something that resembles a traditional red velvet cake, or trying to make a cake for other people. However, if you're just trying to be healthy and eat it within your own home, go for it!
