Even this healthier version of Denise's cake might win First Prize at the county fair! We used natural cake mix and light sour cream with great results.

The 'crumb' was off for me personally, from the original version of the cake. I used 1 cup of mini chocolate chips to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the cake. It was drier and less dense, but no one noticed the difference--the cake plate was empty! Glazed it with the "Chocolatey Satin Glaze" from AR.

I DID BOTH VERSIONS AND HAVE DONE THIS ONE TWICE BY ACCIDENT BECAUSE I BOUGHT LOW FAT SOUR CREAM FOR SOMETHING ELSE AND ENDED UP USING IT. I DID THE HALF OIL BECAUSE OF OTHERS SAYING THAT 1 CUP WAS TOO MUCH....AND ITS STILL DELICIOUS. I ASLO USED THE SATINY CHOCOLATE GLAZE FOR THE TOPPING AND ITS SPOT ON. THE RECIPE IS ON THIS SITE AS WELL. IT ONLY TAKES A MINUTE TO MAKE IT IN THE MICROWAVE OVEN.

The original is still my preference, but this was still very good and everyone enjoyed it.
