I’ve been eating a lot of dessert lately so I wanted something healthier. I was bringing it to a friend’s dinner so I still wanted it to meet expectations. I found a recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal Cake and altered it to lessen the fat and sugar.

For the cake: I changed the half cup of margarine to 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter. I reduced the white sugar to half a cup and the brown sugar to half a cup.
For the frosting: I cut the amount of confectioner’s sugar in half to 2 cups.

If you’re a perfectionist, I recommend cutting off the edges because they get a little crispy. The rest of the cake is lovely and moist. All of my friends really enjoyed it.
