*To prepare prune puree, simmer 1/2 c prunes in water to cover for about 10 minutes. Let stand until cool. Drain well. Force the prunes through a sieve, leaving behind the skin particles and seeds.

This recipe for all of you healthy chocolate freaks. This recipe comes from an article about fruit, since it uses prune puree instead of fat. My one gripe, about which I have written to the paper, is that they do NOT do a nutritional analysis of a recipe, even though they call it low-fat. However, those of us who are experienced in baking low-fat can see that there is little fat in this cake.

This cake has excellent flavour and texture and still hard to believe it's low-fat.
