Cardamom-date snack cake
10/31/04 09:13 AM

I couldn't wait to post this even though I have to type it myself as it is brand new and not on the Cooking Light website yet.
Combine in large bowl
2c. flour
1t. powder
1t soda
1/2t salt
1/2t. cinnamon
1/2t. cardamom

combine in medium bowl and mix with mixers
4 1/2T margarine
1c. brown sugar
1c. apple sauce
1t. vanilla
3/4 c. egg beaters I think that= 3 eggs

Mix wet ingredients into dry until combined and add
3/4c. chopped dates or other dried fruit (I used golden raisins)

Pour into pan coated with cooking spray. Use 9inch square cake pan or I used a springform pan.

Mix for topping:
1/3c sliced almonds or finely chopped walnuts or pecans
3T. flour
3T. brown sugar
2T. melted margarine
pour over cake batter

Bake in preheated oven for 35 min- 40 min. or until pick comes out clean.
I don't have a fat total for this but was trying to figure it out.
As it was printed with total 7T BUTTER and 3 eggs and almonds it has 7.6grams of fat for 1/16 of the cake and that is 30% fat. But with no fat eggs and lite margarine I think it will be a lot less fat.
You could also substitute oats for nuts but you miss the omega 3 acids.
I just wanted to say this was delicious! I was thinking you could put less margarine in the cake and a little more applesauce, but I wouldn't change it too much.

IBS-A for 20 years with terrible bloating and gas. On the diet since April 2004. Remember this from Heather's information pages:
"You absolutely must eat insoluble fiber foods, and as much as safely possible, but within the IBS dietary guidelines. Treat insoluble fiber foods with suitable caution, and you'll be able to enjoy a wide variety of them, in very healthy quantities, without problem." Please eat IF foods!
