2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons of unsifted baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup water
6 tablespoons prune puree*
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 2 eggs, separated
1 3/4 cups Naturally Sweet Xylitol


Combine flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.  In another bowl, mix together melted butter, water, prune puree, applesauce, sour cream, vanilla extract, and egg yolks.  In a large bowl, beat egg whites with mixer until soft peaks form; gradually add xylitol and beat until peaks are stiff but not dry.  Using a spatula, gradually fold dry ingredients into beaten egg whites alternately with liquid ingredients, and stir just until batter is smooth.  Transfer the batter to a 9" x 13" baking pan that has been buttered, lined with parchment paper, and buttered again.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in centre comes out clean.

     * Prune Puree:  In blender, combine 1/2 cup pitted prunes and 1 cup water.  Process on high for several minutes, or until mixture is smooth. This yields 1 1/2 cups.
