You can top off any meal with this cake. After some makeover from the original recipe from my mom, it's just as good without the guilt! —Sarah Newman, Mahtomedi, Minnesota

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Add egg, then egg whites, beating well after each addition. Beat in the sour cream, applesauce and vanilla (mixture will appear curdled). Combine the flours, baking powder, salt and baking soda; stir into butter mixture just until blended.
  2. Pour half of the batter into a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle half over the batter. Top with half of the chocolate chips.
  3. Gently top with remaining batter; spread evenly. Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon-sugar and chips. Bake at 350° for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
