Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup baking cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 package (8 ounces) reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup seedless raspberry jam
  • Fresh raspberries, mint sprigs and additional onfectioners' sugar, optional

Method

    1. In a large bowl, beat the sugar, water, buttermilk, eggs, applesauce, oil and vanilla until well blended. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt and baking soda; gradually beat into sugar mixture until blended.
    2. Transfer to two 9-in. round baking pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
    3. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and jam until blended. Split each cake into two horizontal layers. Place a bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with a third of the filling. Repeat layers twice. Top with remaining cake layer. Garnish with raspberries, mint and additional confectioners' sugar if desired.

Thanks.... It is lovely!! I was a bit doubtful about adding my own recipes because I though no one would try them but perhaps Iam wrong!

Tried this out because it looks lovely for my daughters birthday and she loved it!! I only did 2 layers because I wasn't sure if all of them would work!! Thanks again for another recipe for the chocoholics!

There doesn't need to be so many layers in this cake.
