Mini Chocolate Fudge Cakes – Free 12WBT Recipe

Nutrition // Tanya Paolucci // 16 December 2015

Chocolate is often a food that is seen as a “no-no” when trying to eat healthy. However, if put into an amazing cake recipe like this, a single portion can be enjoyed without the guilt!


(Serves 10)

1/2 Cup Self Raising Wholemeal Flour (70g)

1/4 Cup Plain Flour (40g)

1/3 Cup Cocoa Powder (35g)

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (80g)

1 x 140g tubs Apple Puree (140g)

130g Low Fat Natural Yoghurt

2 x Cage Free Eggs (118g)

10 Small scoops Vanilla Ice Cream, Low Fat (300g)

250g Raspberries


Preheat oven to 150 C (fan-forced). Spray 10 × 80ml (1/3 cup) muffin pans with cooking spray.

Sift the flour and cocoa powder into a bowl, returning any husks from the sieve to bowl.

Stir in the sugar.

Whisk the apple puree, yoghurt and eggs in a bowl. Add to the flour mixture and mix until combined.

Spoon the mixture evenly between the muffin pans. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the cakes comes out clean. Set aside in the pan for 5 minutes before using a small knife to loosen the cakes and place on serving plates.

Dust each cake with cocoa and serve with a scoop of ice-cream and raspberries.

    Why low fat in this recipe? I thought all the new research was that low fat is what is making us all fat as its loaded with additional sugar.

    1. Leila Nemra Reply

      Hi Sam – Fat contains a large calorie load per gram, that is one of the reasons why it keeps you fuller for longer. Any food labeled ‘low fat’ or ‘full fat’ may have sugar added to it, that is why you should always read the ingredient list. As far as this recipe goes, we aim to keep treats portion controlled and low in calories, so to keep the calories low, the recipe team has kept fat to a minimum. You are welcome to use full fat products but be aware that the calorie load will increase greatly – making it a decadent treat rather than a 12WBT snack.

      All the best,
