Black Devil's Food Cake (Low-Fat)
  • Servings: 20
  • Vegetable oil spray
  • 2 cup all-purpose flour, plus flour for dusting pan
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon baking soda
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 cup fat-free or low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup strong coffee
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x9x2-inch pan with vegetable oil spray. Dust with flour; shake off excess. In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, sugar, cocoa powder and baking soda. Whisk in applesauce, buttermilk and vegetable oil.
  2. In a small saucepan, bring coffee to a boil over medium-high heat. Stir gently into batter. Mixture will be soupy. Pour into pan. Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm or let cool completely.
  3. Seven-minute frosting or a dusting of powdered sugar can dress up the top.
