Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    100 grams dates (3 1/2 oz)
    1 cup apple juice
    1/2 tsp baking soda (bi-carbonate of soda)
    1 cup of self raising flour (or 1 cup of cake flour and 1 tsp baking powder)
    1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
    4 egg whites
    3/4 cup Splenda

Directions

Place dates, apple juice and baking soda into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Remove from heat, cover and leave to cool. When cool, blend in a food processor until smooth.

Line a 18cm cake pan with baking paper.

Preheat oven to 335 deg F (179 deg C).

Sift the flour and the cocoa powder into a bowl and stir in the date puree and the vanilla extract.

Beat egg whites until stiff adding Splenda gradually. Fold half the egg whites into the date mixture, (if mixture is a little dry add 1-2 Tblspn water or nonfat milk) then fold in remaining egg whites.

Spoon mixture into prepared pan and bake for @35 minutes until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool on a rack and serve.

NOTE: The date puree replaces the fat content, you could try prunes as a substitute and puree them, the juice could be replaced with another.
If you want to use sugar instead of Splenda use 1/3 cup unpacked Brown Sugar and add another 22 calories to each serve.
