This is a recipe that I did a makeover on.  The original recipe was a contribution by my boss Georgia.  🙂  I included the nutritional analyses for before and after.

Ingredients for the cake:

6 TBSP Lite Margarine (I used Smart Balance spread in a tub)

½ cup unsweetened applesauce

½ cup brown sugar

½ cup granulated white sugar

4 egg whites

2 tsp. vanilla

3 cups flour

1 TBSP baking soda

1 package sugar free vanilla pudding (1.3 oz.)

1 cup fat free, plain Greek yogurt


1/3 cup brown sugar

1 TBSP Lite Margarine (I used Smart Balance spread in a tub)

6 oz. MINI semi sweet morsels

¼ cup quick cooking oats

¼ cup finely chopped walnuts

1 tsp. cinnamon

  • Cream butter and add brown and white sugars and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs, applesauce, and vanilla and blend together.
  • Combine flour, pudding mix and baking soda.  Then add to creamed mixture alternately with the yogurt.
  • Combine topping ingredients; may have to blend together with  your fingers to make sure that everything is incorporated well.
  • Spray a 9X13 inch pan with cooking spray and spoon batter evenly into it.  Sprinkle chocolate morsel mixture over the mixture evenly.  Bake  at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean in the middle.
