    Delicious! I skipped the sugar, and found the condensed milk to be enough sweetness, reduced the grape seed oil to 3 tablespoons and used 4 whole eggs instead of 3 plus an egg white. Split between 2 cake tins it cooked very quickly at 160c fan forced, about 15 mins. Watch the top doesn't burn.  -  07 Jul 2014


    You will definitely be able to tell this cake is fat free. The texture is like a big, dry brownie. The funny thing is, it tastes good. The chocolate chips are a must. If you are watching your fat intake, this cake is perfect, otherwise, I suggest you make a regular cake.  -  15 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is a really good black forest cake recipe! I used fat free condensed milk, and found the Sunsweet oil substitute on the same shelf as corn starch and baking powder at the store. THe result's a moist cake that you wouldn't be able to tell it's low in fat!! Definitely a heaven for people who are dieting or want to eat healthy!!  -  18 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
