Better for you Brownie Cake

This has always been one of our favorite recipes, and everyone who ever had it seemed to agree. But the original recipe called for 18 TABLESPOONS of margarine!  So we just didn't feel good about making it, since it was one of our favorites I kept working with it till I got it down to just 8 Tablespoons of margarine.  We don’t miss those 10 extra Tablespoons  at all  and didn’t sacrifice any of the chocolaty goodness!
