Post the recipe you used? Did you use all ww flour, or mix with white? All ww, no shortening or sugar, would turn out kinda like adobe, I'm thinking. Did the recipe call for straw? ;p

I think what killed it was the no fat thing. Why no fat? There are healthy fats, like raw coconut oil. Primo for baking, and a medium chain triglyceride...your body can't even store it. All you can do is burn it for energy, and it tastes good.

I am confused. You posted that you made this cake with no fat and did not like it, but then said you like no fat and think it is fine.

It sounds like you took liberties with a cake recipe - and it was a flop. Without knowing what the original recipe called for, and what you actually used, it's kind of hard to explain why it was a flop.

One thing - ww flour is not normally used for cakes due to the higher protein content ... cake flour may have worked - but, again, don't know the rest of the recipe.

FWIW: Even if you had followed a published recipe exactly - not all recipes actually work.
