Cocoa Applesauce Cake


Vegetable oil spray
1 1/4 cups whole-wheat pastry flour or all-purpose flour
1/4 cup uncooked regular or quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup fat-free or low-fat buttermilk
2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
Egg substitute equivalent to 2 eggs, or 2 large eggs
3 tablespoons canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray an 11 x 7 x 2-inch glass baking dish with vegetable oil spray. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, oats, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. In a large bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Stir the flour mixture into the buttermilk mixture until just combined. Spread the batter in the prepared pan. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cake springs back when gently touched in the center and a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
