Introduction

I've taken my Mom's old recipe and made it MUCH more healthful. It tastes just as good, but not nearly as oily :) I've taken my Mom's old recipe and made it MUCH more healthful. It tastes just as good, but not nearly as oily :)

    4 eggs
    1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/3 cup canola oil
    1 tsp vanilla

    2 cups whole wheat flour
    2 tsp baking soda

    Frosting:

    1.5 cups sifted powdered sugar
    milk to thin if necessary (add 1 tsp at a time)

Directions

Pour into greased 9x12" baking pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean.

For frosting, cream together the cream cheese, lemon juice and powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time until you get the consistency you like. Thin with milk if necessary.
