snack cake

SO.... back to the recipes kids.  After several comments about how to make this delicious cake- here ya go mags- snack cake!  I made it for Mags, Becks, and Nicole and Maggie asked about it tonight after some gourmet tuna noodle casserole and during the bach.  Confession- there ya go.  I haven't made it in awhile, and it was a surprising success.  As in, the girls ate the whole cake that night.  And they loved it.  Point and case by the photo below.  I'll let that be the encouragement to you as to why you should make this not a cake, not a cookie snack cake!

Recipe a la Cooking Light


  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 3/4  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla extract
  • 2  large egg whites
  • 1/4  cup  semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Set aside.
