Cakes, muffins and baked goods with a cakey texture often call for oil rather than butter or margarine, which is a healthier kind of fat, and because it?s a liquid rather than a solid, it creates a more cakey texture. In these recipes you could replace some of the oil with applesauce, pumpkin puree, mashed bananas or other fruit puree, but don?t replace all of the fat with a fruit puree or you?ll end up with a gummy texture. Cocoa is great for baking with ? it lends a more intense chocolate flavour without adding any fat. Dark Dutch-processed cocoa is best. You could replace the chocolate in most recipes with cocoa ? use about cup cocoa for every square of baking chocolate. The general advice is to also add 2-3 Tbsp. fat, but you don?t need to. http://www.myviva.ca/Recipes/Delicious-Chocolate-Cake.aspx

Recipe Ingredients for Coffee Chocolate Cake

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup cocoa
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup milk (regular or soy)
1/2 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup hot coffee or boiling water

Recipe Directions for Coffee Chocolate Cake

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Spray two 9″ round baking pans or one Bundt pan with nonstick spray, or line muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt, breaking up any lumps of brown sugar and cocoa.

  3. Add the milk, oil, eggs and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes. Add the coffee and beat on low speed just until blended. The batter will be thin.

  4. Divide the batter among the prepared pans and bake them for 30-35 minutes for layer cakes, 20-25 minutes for cupcakes or 50-55 minutes for a Bundt cake, until the top of the cakes are springy to the touch. Let them cool for about 10 minutes before running a knife around the edge of the pans and inverting them onto a wire rack. Cool completely before you frost them.

  5. Makes two 9″ layers, 2 dozen cupcakes or one Bundt cake.
