serves 18 with only 143 calories a serving! 


1 1/2 cups Egg Beaters
1 cup applesauce
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups apples, grated
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cloves, ground
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped 


Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray a 9' x 13' x 2' pan with non stick baking spray.

Beat together the egg beaters, sugar, and applesauce until light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla and grated apples.

Combine the dry ingredients and fold into the wet ingredients. Fold in the raisins and walnuts.

Spread in the pan and bake for 45 - 55 minutes or until the cake tests done. Turn the cake out onto a rack and cool completely before cutting into 18 squares.

Yes, you can have dessert every now and then and lose weight. It's all about knowing the calories and portion control. Enjoy!
