This rich chocolate cake recipe is made healthier by replacing fat with applesauce and Greek yogurt. It also makes a 9×9 inch pan, which means you don’t have a large amount of leftovers tempting you for days! A dusting of powdered sugar replaces traditional cake icing for a lower fat and sugar option, while adding a pretty topping to the cake.
