Ingredients

Unsweetened cocoa powder

¾ cup(s), powder

Sugar

¾ cup(s)

All-purpose flour

½ cup(s)

Baking powder

½ tsp(s)

Table salt

½ tsp(s)

Plain lowfat yogurt

½ cup(s)

Vanilla extract

2 tbsp(s)

Cooking spray

2 spray(s)

Instructions

  1. Position the rack in the center of the oven and preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Whisk the cocoa powder, sugar, flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. Then use a wooden spoon to stir in the yogurt and vanilla until smooth but quite thick.
  3. Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread the thick batter into the pan, evenly to the corners.
  4. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out with a few moist crumbs attached, about 20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes before cutting into 16 squares, 2- X 2-inches each. Yields 1 square per serving.
