Vegan Low-Fat Chocolate Applesauce Cake



This low-fat and vegan cake recipe uses applesauce instead of eggs or oil, making it nearly fat-free and guilt-free! Though its a little bit heavier than other cakes, the generous amount of cocoa makes this vegan cake absolutely heavenly. If this applesauce cake doesn't sound like the recipe you're looking for, try checking out my dozens of other vegan cake recipes.
Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa
1 1/2 cups applesauce

Preparation:

Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. Note: You can use other cake pans, but because this cake is a bit heavy, layered cake pans are not recommended.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.

Add applesauce and mix well until batter is smooth.

Bake for 50-55 minutes, until done. You can always tell that a cake is finished baking by sticking a toothpick in the center of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, that is, not covered in batter, then your cakes is done baking.

Frost, if desired, and enjoy!

I've heard that despite of organic sweeteners being natural, they're still to be consumed moderately.
