Applesauce Spice Cake
Yummy!!! The first dessert I've made TED/MSPI safe that was delicious! I took this to a friends house for lunch and it was very well received. If they hadn't known I was on a restrictive diet, no one ever would have known the cake was missing eggs, milk, etc. Yeah!
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 cups white sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. ground allspice (I didn't have allspice so used some ginger and nutmeg)
1/2 cup Smart Balance light or other whey free margarine
1/2 cup rice milk + 1/2 Tbsp. white vinegar or lemon juice (buttermilk substitute)
1 1/2 cups applesauce
2 EnerG egg substitutes
1/4 cup Smart Balance light or other whey free margarine
3 cups confectioners sugar
1-2 Tbsp. rice milk
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. sugar free caramel flavored syrup
Combine flour, sugar soda, salt, baking powder and spices in a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whip up the egg replacer, add to flour mixture. Cream the margarine and "buttermilk" and applesauce, add to flour mixture. Beat for 2 minutes with an electric mixer on medium speed. Pour batter into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Whip frosting ingredients together until smooth and creamy. Frost cake when cooled.
Apologies on the bad picture....I started to eat a piece then realized I hadn't yet taken a picture!
