This is an amazing cake: it contains no fats such as butter, cream, shortening or oil, and no eggs. In spite of these limitations, it tastes better than any cake mix and than most other chocolate cakes made from scratch.
Spread jam between the layers and decorate with powdered sugar, for a fat free, cholesterol free birthday!
