   This cake is remarkable; no one would ever believe
   that it is so low in fat and calories. Depending on
   the sweetness of the fruit you use to garnish the
   cake, you may wish to increase or decrease the sugar
   in the lemon syrup. (By Times Food Stylists)

   stand about 15 minutes. Stir in pear puree, egg white,
   vanilla and lemon zest. Sift together cake flour, 3/4
   cup sugar and baking powder in another bowl. Stir
   nonfat milk mixture just until blended. Pour into
