Applesauce Cake

This cake recipe will satisfy your sweet tooth without adding to your waistline; it’s low in fat and derives its sweetness from maple syrup and a combination of applesauce and juice instead of sugar.

What You Need:

  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon non-aluminum baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups applesauce
  • 3/4 cup apple juice
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons safflower oil, plus additional for pan 
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

What You Do:

  1. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, spices, and salt. In another bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and whisk well to combine.
  2. Lightly grease a non-stick 9x13-inch pan with a little safflower oil. Pour batter into the greased pan, and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting into 12 pieces. Serve plain or topped with maple apples and a tofu whipped topping.
