Skinny chocolate fudge cake
This low-calorie cake is rich and dark, and it turns even fudgier the longer it rests. 

Vegetable oil, to grease

100g unsweetened cocoa powder

125g Self raising flour

2 tsp baking powder

¼ tsp salt

2 tbsp unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 tbsp vanilla extract

150g granulated sugar

125g plain non-fat Greek yogurt

175ml non-fat milk

Vanilla frozen yoghurt, to serve (optional)

Lightly coat the slow cooker with vegetable oil.

Whisk together the cocoa powder, flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.

In a separate bowl, whisk together the butter, eggs, and vanilla.

Add in the sugar, yoghurt and a ¼ of the milk, mixing thoroughly until smooth.

Alternate between adding the flour mixture and remaining milk, stirring just until incorporated, beginning and ending with the flour mixture.

Spread the batter into the slow cooker.

Cook on low for 2-2 ½ hours, or until the centre no longer looks moist and feels barely firm to the touch.

Remove the lid, turn off the slow cooker, and cool the cake in the bowl for 20 minutes before carefully turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
