7/13/14 Katie's Healthy Eating Journal: Wednesday

Today was my Mom's birthday.  My parents are both trying to watch their weight so they requested I make a low-fat spice cake.  I made it from the box but used applesauce instead of oil.  I was a little worried it would not turn out well because the zucchini bread I made with applesauce was something I would eat again but you could definitely tell the difference between that bread and the real thing.  It almost had a funny aftertaste.  I also decided to make the icing from scratch.  Instead of butter I used margarine but there was really no way to get around the confectionary sugar.  However, I did use a bunt cake which cut down on how large the slices were and decreased the amount of icing by more than half!  The verdict on the lowfat spice cake? - DELICIOUS!  Everyone loved it!  This made me feel good that I made my Mom a lowfat dinner and dessert.  I love when something I cook and work hard on turns out well (and for half the calories!).
