Double Chocolate Spiced Apple Cake

With apple picking season upon us, I thought this was a nice alternative to traditional apple recipes.

serves 16 ( 6 points+ )

  • ⅓ c. light stick butter, softened
  • 1-⅔ c. sugar
  • ¾ c. egg beaters
  • ½ c. low-fat buttermilk
  • ½ c. Danon Light and Fit vanilla yogurt
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2-½ c. flour
  • ½ c. baking cocoa
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. allspice
  • 2 c. grated peeled tart apples
  • ½ c. mini chocolate chips
  • ½ tsp. powdered sugar

In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly. Add egg beaters, buttermilk, yogurt and vanilla and mix well. Combine the dry ingredients (through allspice) and add to the wet ingredients, mixing until just blended. Stir in apples and chocolate chips. Transfer to a bundt or tube pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 45-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
