This is a perfect chocolate cake for those keeping an eye on their fat intake. It uses skim condensed milk. The taste and texture is still delicious.

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
