Dairy Free Chocolate Cake

I modified a dairy free chocolate cake recipe today to make it a 2 point weight watchers friendly cake. It is pretty good. Definitely satisfies a chocolate craving without sacrificing many points and is made from ingredients I always have on hand.

Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray.

Whisk together in a large bowl:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Then add:
1 cup cold water
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 Tbsp distilled white vinegar
2 tsp vanilla

Whisk until smooth and add to the pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
