2 ingredient low-fat chocolate cake recipe

This delicious chocolate cake has just 2 ingredients and is lower in fat than your average chocolate cake.

Serving Size:




  • 1 x Betty Crocker devil's food cake mix (540g)
  • 2 1/2 cups (625g) low-fat Greek yoghurt


Step 1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line a 20cm round cake tin with baking paper and set aside.

Step 2. Place cake mix ingredients in a mixing bowl with two cups of the yoghurt and mix on slow speed, adding more yoghurt as you go until you have a smooth, pourable batter.

Step 3. Pour mixture into tin and smooth top. 

Step 4. Bake for 35-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely. Pour frosting satchet over the top and spread. Serve with any fresh berries you have on hand.

2 ingredient low-fat chocolate cake


  • OK, so maybe this cake doesn't strictly have 2 ingredients once you add the icing but you only have to BUY two ingredients.
  • I added the yoghurt gradually as each different brand has a higher or lower water content and you will get a better product if you add the yoghurt until you have a smooth cake batter.
  • I don't think this recipe would be successful with natural yoghurt as the water content is too high in this yoghurt.
