    Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting

    Source of Recipe
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/4 cup boiling water
    1/3 cup applesauce
    1/4 cup egg substitute
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    Chocolate Frosting, recipe follows

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    Line an 8-inch cake pan with a circle of parchment paper cut to fit the bottom of the pan. Set pan aside.

    In a large bowl, mix baking soda, sugar, flour, and salt. Dissolve cocoa powder in hot water and then add to dry ingredients. Stir in applesauce, egg substitute, and vanilla. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 35 minutes. Cool cake completely on a cooling rack before frosting with chocolate frosting.

    Chocolate Frosting:
    8 ounces light cream cheese
    1 tablespoon light butter
    2 cups sugar substitute (recommended: Splenda)
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    3 tablespoons skim milk

    In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and butter together until smooth. Add sugar substitute and beat until incorporated. Add cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla and beat until blended. If the frosting is too thick to spread, add the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, with the mixer on low, until spreading consistency is achieved.
