This low-fat and vegan cake recipe uses applesauce instead of eggs or oil, making it nearly fat-free and guilt-free! Though its a little bit heavier than other cakes, the generous amount of cocoa makes this vegan cake absolutely heavenly.

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 60 minutes
· 2 cups flour
· 1 cup sugar
· 1 tbsp cornstarch
· 2 tsp baking soda
· 1/4 tsp salt
· 1/3 cup cocoa
· 1 1/2 cups applesauce
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt cake pan. Note: You can use other cake pans, but because this cake is a bit heavy, layered cake pans are not recommended.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl.
Add applesauce and mix well until batter is smooth.
Bake for 50-55 minutes, until done. You can always tell that a cake is finished baking by sticking a toothpick in the center of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, that is, not covered in batter, then your cakes is done baking.
Frost, if desired, and enjoy!

This is the link to the recipe I followed, although I did alter is a bit, I added 2 cap fulls of vanilla, used 2 mashed banana's and about a 1/2 C apple sauce (instead of the whole amount of apple sauce), 1 Tbsp Cinnamon, 1/2 C soy milk, 3/4C walnuts, 1/2 C chocolate chips
So while I mixed all the dry ingredients together, when it was time to add the wet (apple sauce) that is when I added the banana/apple sauce mix, vanilla and soy milk, once everything was mixed well I added crushed walnuts and chocolate chips....for visual effect I put whole walnut halves on the bottom of my bundt cake pan.....Enjoy!
