Ingredients

1/2 cup reduced-fat butter, melted
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup dark corn syrup
1-1/2 cups pecan halves
1 package (18-1/4 ounces) butter pecan cake mix
1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 eggs
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a small bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and pecans.



Spread evenly into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.



In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; beat on low speed for 30 seconds. Beat on medium for 2 minutes. Transfer to prepared pan.



Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes before inverting onto a serving platter. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Notes

This moist and tender cake is packed with pecans and sweetness. Although still not a "light" dessert, it has nearly a third fewer calories and 43 percent less fat than the original!
