Almost sinful! Your family and friends will love this devilishly 250-calories cake.

Mini Molten Chocolate Cakes

A moist chocolate cake with a seductive center.

Even health-conscious eaters can have their chocolate cake and eat it too.  The health profiles of these truly decadent-tasting Chocolate Cake are increased  by using applesauce, egg white, white whole wheat flour  and limiting the use of full-fat ingredients. These  healthier substitutions will satisfy even the strongest chocolate craving.
