Poor Man's Cake http://www.davita.com/recipes/desserts/poor-man's-cake/a/7728

If ever a time in history called for a recipe called Poor Man’s Cake, this just might be it. All the ingredients are simple, and most kitchens will have these items already on the shelf. Created by DaVita LPN, Michelle,  it was passed along by her co-worker and dietitian, Kathy from Virginia. Suitable for CKD and dialysis food plans, the cake calls for just a half cup of cocoa to give it a rich color and chocolaty taste. Kathy says that Michelle gave her the recipe because she wanted to help patients maintain good phosphorus control while enjoying their chocolate. Sounds a little like having your cake and eating it too, doesn’t it? Poor Man’s Cake makes 24 portions—more than enough to share!
