Weight Watchers Apple Sauce Cake

Three weeks till my Florida vacation and I finally decided this was it. This is the week I am finally going back on Weight Watchers, for real this time. Whenever I am being "good", I buy myself a little treat for the end of the day as a reward for all that discipline. My favorite is Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches. I was disappointed to find that in the local DAG the price has gone up to about $7.50! Sigh.

I decided to make my own treats instead and came across a recipe for an applesauce cake. This cake can be made with what most people keep in the pantry. I had to try it since I've just gotten back from apple picking and happened to have made homemade apple sauce.

Very moist and especially tasty with a dollop of fat free cool whip. This does not have a ton of flavor (maybe add pumpkin pie spice?) or sweetness. It was great at the end of the day with a cup of tea.
