Vegan Low Fat Chocolate Applesauce Cake

It's a New Year and most of us like to start the year off eating lite, for the month of January I will bake vegan, lite and low fat desserts....

I was impressed with the way this cake turned out it was very good for it not to have butter and I really enjoyed the fat free topping.

This was a very easy one mixing bowl recipe.

I sprinkled with confectioners sugar

add a scoop of fat free whipped topping...delicious!!


2 cups unbleached flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder, unsweetened
1 1/2 cups applesauce, unsweetened


Pre-heat oven 325.

Grease and flour, or non-stick spray a bundt or square pan.
Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl.
Add applesauce and mix well until batter is smooth.

Bake for 40-50 minutes or until done. (Insert toothpick in center of cake; if comes out clean, cake is done.)

1. If you want the cake to be all vegan you may want to omit the confectioners sugar and fat free topping...

*If you have a dessert recipe that you are having trouble with or afraid to try, please send it to me along with a picture and I will give it a shot….

P.S. I don’t like coconut

I hope you enjoy

Bon app├ętit in Portuguese - Bom apetite!
