Ingredients

For Cakes:

  • 1  Teaspoon  shortening
  • 2  Tablespoons  plus 2 teaspoons unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 1/2  Cup  plus 1 teaspoon Gold Medal all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  Cup  semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1  Tablespoon  vegetable oil
  • 1  Cup  powdered sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  fat-free egg product
  • container (5.3 ounces) Yoplait Greek 100 Fat Free black cherry yogurt

For Toppings (Optional)

  • 1  Tablespoon  powdered sugar
  • 12  cherries, with stems

Directions

For Cakes:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease 12 regular-size muffin cups with shortening. In small bowl, stir together 2 teaspoons of the baking cocoa and 1 teaspoon of the flour; lightly sprinkle in muffin cups.

In medium bowl, microwave chocolate chips and oil uncovered on high 1 to 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds, until mixture is melted and smooth. Stir in powdered sugar and the egg product with whisk until blended. Stir in 2 tablespoons baking cocoa, the yogurt and ½ cup flour. Spoon batter evenly into muffin cups, filling each about two-thirds full.

Bake 9 to 10 minutes, or until sides are firm (centers will still be soft). Let stand 2 minutes. Place serving platter upside down on muffin pan. Turn platter and muffin pan over; remove muffin pan.

For Toppings (Optional)

Sprinkle cakes with powdered sugar, and top each with a cherry. Serve immediately.

Chocolate Shopping Tip

There are so many varieties of chocolate on the shelves today it can be overwhelming to pick one – as a general rule of thumb, the fewer the ingredients, the better the chocolate.

Chocolate Cooking Tip

When melting chocolate, use a double boiler and stir occasionally to avoid scorching chocolate at the bottom of the bowl.
