Red Velvet Cake VI

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup lowfat buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1 fluid ounce red food coloring
  •  
  • 1 (8 ounce) package fat free cream cheese
  • 1 (12 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 cup toasted, chopped pecans

Instructions

    1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour 3 – 8 inch pans. Sift together the flour and baking soda; set aside.

    2 In a large bowl, cream together the oil, applesauce and sugar. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Beat in the flour mixture alternately with the buttermilk, mixing just until incorporated. Stir in the vanilla, vinegar and red food coloring. Divide batter evenly into prepared pans.

    3 Bake in the preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. Allow to cool, then frost with Low-Fat Cream Cheese Frosting and sprinkle with toasted chopped pecans.

    4 To make Low-Fat Cream Cheese Frosting: In a medium bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in whipped topping and confectioners’ sugar.
