This low-fat chocolate-chip Bundt cake is topped with a sweet chocolate drizzle.


  • For the Cake:
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • For the Chocolate Drizzle:
  • 1/3 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat milk



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup Bundt pan with cooking spray.

Beat the egg whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer on low speed until foamy. Add the cream of tartar, increase speed to medium-high and beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until stiff but not dry (this can take up to 5 minutes).

Combine the remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in another large bowl. Beat in the buttermilk, oil, vanilla and a heaping spoonful of whites with the mixer on medium speed. Fold in the remaining whites and chocolate chips with a whisk. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan, smoothing the top.

Bake the cake until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Invert onto rack and let cool completely.


Combine the chocolate chips and milk in a small saucepan. Heat over low heat, stirring, until the chocolate is melted and mixture is smooth. Drizzle over the cooled cake. Let stand for about 45 minutes before slicing.
