Hi. The Life Network on Canadian cable TV carries a show called Lighten Up! which is hosted by Rose Reisman, a local expert on nutritional lowered-fat recipes. This weeks episode includes a chocolate espresso cake which meets the calories from fat percent limits of this list, so I am copying and pasting the recipe from the shows archives to this list. There are lots of other low fat recipes given in the same document, which is a growing list of all the recipes prepared on Lighten Up! http://www.lifenetwork.ca/past.asp?ShowID=101 Serves 10 to 12; Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C); 8 inch (2 L) springform pan sprayed with vegetable spray. Melt chocolate chips with coffee; stir until smooth. Allow to cool. In a large bowl, beat together egg yolks, 3/4 cup (175 mL) sugar, evaporated milk, cocoa, flour and vanilla until smooth. Beat in chocolate-coffee mixture. With an electric mixer in a separate bowl, beat egg whites until soft peaks form. Gradually add 3 tbsp. (45 mL) sugar and continue beating until stiff peaks form. Stir one-quarter of egg whites into chocolate batter. Gently fold in remaining egg whites. Spoon into prepared pan. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until cake is set at the centre. Chill before serving. Puree raspberries in a blender or food processor. Serve sliced cake in a pool of raspberry sauce.

Additional air dates: 2/4/99 10:00pm ET Note: for people who dont use coffee, Rose Reisman suggested replacing the quarter-cup espresso or coffee with either hot chocolate (which would increase the fat content) or with water. Of course, then it would just be a chocolate cake. Posted to EAT-LF Digest by "Ellen Pickett"
