Eggless Chocolate Cake

Eggless Chocolate Cake
Light & Tasty

This dense moist cake from Peggy Weed of Cheshire, Connecticut is sure to satisfy anyone's chocolate cravings. Drizzles with semi-sweet chocolate, the rich cake is special enough for company...if your family doesn't get to it first!

SERVINGS: 14 @ 6 WW points each

CATEGORY: Lower Fat

METHOD: Baked

TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 40 min. + cooling

Ingredients:
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 cup baking cocoa, divided
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups cold brewed coffee
1/3 cup canola oil
2 tablespoons white vinegar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 teaspoon shortening
Directions:
Coat a 10-in. fluted tube pan with cooking spray and dust with 1 tablespoon cocoa; set aside. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and remaining cocoa. In another bowl, combine the coffee, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Stir into dry ingredients just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake at 350° for 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. In a microwave or heavy saucepan, melt chocolate chips and shortening; stir until smooth. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 14 servings

This is 6 pts a serving the way it is - I'm going to try substituting Splenda for 1/2 the sugar. If it turns out - the WW points will be 5, and if I substitute applesauce for the oil - it'll be 4 pts per serving
