You can have your cake and eat it too with this flavorful, moist, low-fat chocolate cake.
Its secret? Plum puree baby food, which takes the place of a traditional fat, such as oil.
I like the cake served slightly warm and sprinkled with cocoa and instant espresso powder. They take the place of frosting-another way to cut calories.
Sprinkle a few fresh raspberries over the top just before serving and you have a quick Valentine’s Day dessert. Be sure not to overmix the cake or it will come out tough; blend the dry ingredients with the liquids just until they are moistened. And you don’t have to drag out your mixer for this cake, which is a holiday treat for the cook as well.
