    1       c            Water
      1/2   c            Prune puree (see note below)
                         -or prepared prune butter
    3       lg           Egg whites
    1 1/2   ts           Vanilla
    1       c            Plus 2 tb flour
    1       c            Plus 2 tb sugar
      3/4   c            Unsweetened cocoa
    1 1/2   ts           Baking powder
      1/4   ts           Baking soda
      1/4   ts           Salt
   Preheat oven to 350^.  Coat a 9 square pan with
   cooking spray.
   In a mixer bowl, combine water, prune puree, egg
   whites and vanilla. Beat thoroughly to blend. Combine
   flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and
   salt.  Beat dry ingredients into liquid mixture.
   Spread batter into prepared pan.  Bake about 30
   minutes, or until cake tests done.  Cool on rack in
   pan.  Serve dusted with powdered sugar or with the
   following icing.
   NOTE:  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.
   ICING:  Combine 2 1/2 c powdered sugar, 1/4 c cocoa
   and 1/4 c low fat milk. Spread on cooled cake.
   This recipe for all of you healthy chocolate freaks.
   Note at the bottom, there is a method for making prune
   puree (very similar to the WonderSlim product that no
   one can find).  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.
