chocolate cake from cook yourself thin


my mother's birthday is coming up and she's been working really hard to get in shape. i don't want to dicourage her or make her feel guilty so i thought i'd try this cake instead of a usual chocolate cake. it didn't give a specific number of servings so i just estimated, however the recipe stated that each serving is only 315 calories.
