Chocolate Sponge Cake

Ingredients:

1 1/3 c eggs at room temperature
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
dry sugar substitute equal to 1/2 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp chocolate flavoring (optional)
3 tbsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp powdered sugar

*Chocolate flavoring is optional

Directions:

Place eggs and sugar in a mixer bowl and mix at high speed, using a whip, until mixture holds a crease when you remove the whip.  Stir flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and dry sugar substitute together to blend well.  Add flour mixture slowly to egg mixture while whipping at slow speed.  When the flour is almost absorbed, slowly pour flavorings and oil into mixture, beating at slow speed.  Pour batter into a 9 x 13-inch cake pan that has been sprayed with pan spray or greased with margarine, lined with wax paper (which should hang over the pan a little), and then greased again.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until cake springs back when touched in the center.  Turn cake out onto a wire rack immediately, removing the wax paper right away if you have used it.  Sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cool to room temperature.  Cut three by four.

Makes 12 Servings.

Applesauce Cake

This recipe is a good source of fiber.

Ingredients:

1 c 100% Bran, Fiber One, Bran Buds, or All-Bran
1 large egg
1/4 c vegetable oil
liquid sugar substitute equal to 1/2 c sugar or the equivalent to 1/2 c dry sugar substitute and 2 tbsp water
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1 c unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp water
1 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp dry buttermilk
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 c chopped pecans
1/4 c raisins, washed and drained

Directions:

Place bran, egg, vegetable oil, sugar substitute, brown sugar, applesauce, and water in mixer bowl.  Mix lightly and let stand for 30 to 45 minutes. (This standing is very important to allow the cereal to soften.) Stir flour, soda, dry buttermilk, salt, and cinnamon together to blend. Add flour mixture to bran mixture and mix at medium speed to blend well.  Add pecans and raisins. Spread the batter evenly in a well-greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pan. Bake at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes, or until a cake tester comes out clean from the center and the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn out onto a wire rack and cool to room temperature. Cut into 14 equal slices and use 1 slice per serving.

Makes 14 (1-inch slice) Servings.

1 Starch and 1 Fat; or 1 Carbohydrate Choice

Add eggs and vanilla, and mix at medium speed until creamy, scraping down the bowl before and after adding eggs and vanilla. Stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and walnuts. Mix at medium speed until creamy. Spread batter evenly in a 9-inch square cake pan that has been sprayed with pan spray or greased with margarine. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 35 minutes, or until cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and a cake tester comes out clean from the center. Cool on a wire rack to room temperature.
