You'd never guess this rich-tasting delicious chocolate dessert is much lighter than a traditional cake or brownie. The applesauce adds moisture and helps reduce the fat. —Carolyn Wolbers, Loveland, Ohio


  • 2 large eggs plus 2 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 cups frozen vanilla yogurt


  1. In a bowl, beat eggs and egg whites. Add the applesauce, oil, chocolate and vanilla; mix well. Combine the dry ingredients; gradually add to egg mixture just until combined.
  2. Pour into a 9-in. springform pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan; remove sides of pan. Cut into wedges; serve with frozen yogurt.
